3-hour taxi protest is underway

Members of the Irish Taxi Council are staging a protest at the moment around the country.

In Dublin, participating taxis are refusing to take passengers until around 3PM. They have promised not to engage in any illegal activity like last week when they blocked the Luas tracks on the northside and closed O’Connell St to traffic as a result during rush-hour.

The protest route will see drivers on a ‘go-slow‘ from Parnell St to Kildare St where they will loop back to Parnell St via Molesworth St and Westmoreland St.

An all-out stoppage of taxi services from ITC members is planned for Monday next.

Protest counter hits a lovely round number of 20 just over a year since launch.

    When will taxi drivers get their heads round the fact that no one cares, get off their soap box and just get on with it. Life isn’t fair, dry your eyes build a wall and get over it!!!! If your not happy go back to school and re-train in something else… politican could be a good job for them, they talk the same crap anyway…..
    And if I get in another taxi and the driver gives out about the immigrant taxi drivers I’m going to report them to the taxi commission, I don’t want your opinion, I’m paying you to take me from A to B……..
