Taxi Driver Protest To Block Streets Again

cab_020610.jpg Might be best to avoid using the roads around Aldwych from 3pm today - black cab drivers are blocking the streets in protest at illegal minicab drivers. Cabbies claim police and local authorities aren't doing enough to clamp down on unlicensed drivers, who they say endanger the lives of their passengers. Today's action follows a very successful city jamming last Wednesday, and is being organised by the cabbies themselves ("Cabbies United") without any union intervention. With black cabs so costly to run and the economy making people count their transport pennies we're not surprised they're trying to protect their trade; and remember what we've always said about illegal minicabs!
