WATCH: Dubai taxi fares tested for accuracy


Dubai Municipality is making sure people's rights are being protected through a recently launched initiative.

This comes after taxi meters underwent checks to test their accuracy by measuring distance travelled and waiting time. 

In a video released on Twitter, Dubai Municipality revealed that fuel meters at gas stations in the emirate were also inspected by a technical team. 

The latest smart devices were used at petrol pumps to measure accuracy and efficiency. 

A verified sticker is then placed by inspectors on taxi vehicles and fueling stations once they've passed the checks.
