London Uber Protest Halts Traffic

Posted on February 10, 2016

Taxi drivers brought central London to a complete stop to protest threats to their trade from Uber and changing regulation.

Organisers said about 8,000 drivers took part in the protest on Wednesday afternoon, as traditional black cabs blocked lanes the length of Whitehall and halted much traffic around Westminster and the West End.

Black-cab drivers have been incensed by the actions of Transport for London (TfL) in licensing Uber, blurring the lines between traditional taxis and private hire.
