HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, said, “The RTA is undertaking the TIM Scheme in collaboration with the General HQ of Dubai Police. The Scheme is coordinated with Dubai Municipality, Dubai Traffic Prosecution, Directorate General of Dubai Civil Defence, and Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services.
