Belgium -Taxi drivers protest against new taximeter -June 19, 2013

Over 250 taxi drivers in Brussels blocked traffic in the capital region in protest against a new taximeter the regional government is obliging them to buy at the cost of 3,000. In exchange for a 150 additional taxi ranks, the regional minister has put in place the new taximeter, a code of conduct for drivers and fines for customers causing nuisance. Two organisations representing the taxi drivers, however, complain the new taxi ranks still have not been added and demand the right to drive taxis in bus lanes as well as a harder crack-down on illegal taxis.
