Budapest taxi drivers protest new regulations, threaten blockade
Taxi drivers staged a protest parade at Heroes Square in Budapest on Monday, complaining that stricter technology requirements planned by the city will drive many of them out of business.
Some 150-200 drivers demanded fixed fares and a limit on the number of taxis in Budapest.
They suggested that the new technical requirements should be applied only to new entrants.
The head of a taxi union said in a statement to MTI that drivers would block traffic if the Budapest leadership does meet their demands
