The clarification came after a Twitter user posted a video of the device.

If you have been driving around Dubai recently, you would have noticed flat-surface devices taped to the road. You'll find them one day, and they'll be gone the next.

The RTA has finally shared details of the purpose of these devices.

"This is a 'traffic counting device' that is used for collecting traffic information (counts, speed and Gaps) in order to analyse the junction of the location," the RTA said.

The clarification came after a Twitter user posted a video of the device.
