ATLANTA — Hundreds of Atlanta cab and limo drivers showed up Wednesday at Atlanta City Hall protesting Uber and Lyft drivers picking up passengers at the Atlanta airport.

The fleet of taxis, vans, and limos gathered at Turner Field and paraded their way to downtown Atlanta, where they shut down traffic as part of their event demanding new policies. Traffic on the streets around City Hall came to a halt as the vehicles drove around the building.
