The underlying objective of these campaigns is to raise public awareness about the unacceptable practices and promote compliance with the applicable rules and regulations to ensure the delivery of high-quality services.
The reporting of offences prompts violators to abide by rules in place, especially as Dubai aims to be a happy city for residents, visitors and tourists.
