Dubai's RTA cracks down on fare dodgers, rogue nol card sellers

Dubai's transport authority has cracked down on the unauthorised selling of nol cards and fare dodging in a campaign carried out in collaboration with Jebel Ali Industrial Area Police Station and Dubai Investment Park.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) carried out an inspection campaign, which resulted in the issuance of 146 penalty tickets to violators.

Six offences were related to unauthorised selling of nol cards, 116 offences for evading public transport fares, 17 offences for outlawed passenger transport, and seven offences for sharing taxis.

The RTA said the underlying objective of these campaigns is to raise public awareness about the unacceptable practices and promote compliance with rules and regulations to ensure the delivery of high-quality services.
