Zagreb taxi drivers protest over competition
Taxi drivers have blocked Zagreb city centre in protest over the arrival of 267 new drivers they say will take their jobs away.
According to new regulations city officials want to introduce more competition on to the taxi market in the form of available cabs, limit drivers’ licences to five years and regulate fares making the maximum equal across the board. City officials also want all taxis to be white within five years.
But cab drivers say the new regulations will mean many of them lose their jobs.
The new taxi laws come into effect today (Tues).
