Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has fitted the entire Dubai Taxi fleet with security cameras.

The move is aimed at monitoring driver conduct and enhancing passenger security.

The cameras will be activated once the passenger steps into the taxi and the feed examined if violations are detected or reported.

"Security cameras have been installed in 10,684 taxis comprising the entire taxi fleet in Dubai. The move aims to ensure the compliance of taxi drivers with the ethical and professional principles of their business," said Khaled Al Awadi, Director of Transportation Systems at RTA's Public Transport Agency.

The initiative was launched in 2017.
