Several dozen Prague taxi drivers on Monday joined a protest march against a bill under which taxi services providers would no longer be required to use taximeters and pass a test proving knowledge of a city’s streets.
The legislation, which was approved by the Government to legalize the app-based services, will now go before the lower house of Parliament. The Association of Czech Taxi Drivers, which organized the protest, says the bill could lead to the destruction of traditional taxi services.
