Poland -Taxi drivers protest against illegal competition -October 03, 2015

Taxi drivers in Krakow and Warsaw have blocked roads to protest against illegal competition in the sector. The drivers moved through the city centres at a snail’s pace, blocking two lanes and honking continuously. Licensed cabs are angry about competition by Uber and other unlicensed taxis, which are able to offer lower prices because they do not pay for licenses or taxes. The taxi drivers are calling for better legislation and more inspection.
