DUBAI: Over five days, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has carried out 100 inspection campaigns targeting driving institutes of heavy vehicles checking on the “soundness of vehicles used for learning and their compliance with the approved standards” in a bid to control the performance of facilities in this regard.

“The inspection also covered the delivering of the unified training module, the nine theoretical lectures, and the prescribed number of training lessons,” said the Director of Monitoring and Enforcement at the RTA Public Transport Agency, Mohammed Waleed Nabhan.

He said the objective of the campaign “is to enhance the performance level of these facilities, especially as the heavy vehicles sector is of great importance to the economy of Dubai.

He said the campaign has resulted in spotting violations amounting to 74 per cent of cases reported.

“They were mostly related to the standard training module, the nine theoretical lectures, specifications of the learning vehicles, abandoned vehicles in a training centre (explicit violation of Order (6), Article (9), and the expiry of instructors’ permits among others.

“The RTA has offered violators a grace period to redress their status as campaigns will be re-launched to verify once again their compliance with the standards set for this business. The RTA attaches paramount importance to this type of vehicles as it constitutes one of the key challenges of ensuring traffic security and roads safety.”
