The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) presented forty taxi drivers in Dubai with the 'medal of trust' for their honesty and efficient handling of riders' personal belongings.

The riders were honoured for returning money and valuables worth over AED 4.7 million left behind by passengers during the first half of this year.

"Celebrating these drivers is a celebration of the commitment to work ethics and honesty as well as the compliance with instructions and guidance in place," the RTA's Passenger Transport Activities Monitoring Department said in a statement.

In April 2021, Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE,  ordered the payment of bonuses totalling over AED14 million to citizens whose taxi number plates are used by the Dubai Taxi Corporation and Taxi Franchise Companies.
