The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced that taxis will display drivers’ name on yellow taxi signal at the top of car in Dubai.

This is done in appreciation of the efforts of distinguished drivers who promoted the values of giving and social responsibility during the pandemic by working overtime.

The authority has finished placing name-plates on 638 taxis, including the Dubai Taxi Corporation taxis.

The authority is constantly working on developing incentive programmes for drivers through various initiatives such as the Traffic Safety Award, which it launched 9 years ago, honoring honest drivers on a monthly basis.
