Czech taxi drivers are blocking a major road to Prague’s international airport to protest Uber and other ride-hailing services.

The protest began on Monday morning with taxis driving slowly in both directions on a key road to Prague’s Vaclav Havel airport, causing traffic delays.

The City Hall says only the government is in a position to address the complaints.

The drivers claim Uber and other similar apps are illegal because they don’t meet all the requirements traditional taxi companies have to.
