Taxi drivers protest in Prague

Hundreds of taxi-drivers protested in Prague against a plan proposed by Prague mayor Adriana Krnáčová to tighten up the rules for giving licences to taxi drivers and to re-assess those who already have licenses. The drivers will be required to undergo topographic and psychological tests. Hundreds of taxi drivers met at Prague’s Strahov stadium and drove to Prague Town Hall, where they handed a petition to the mayor. There are currently around 4,000 taxi drivers registered in the Czech capital.
