Budapest, January 20 (MTI) – A continued demonstration of taxi drivers has considerably slowed traffic in the Deak Square area in central Budapest.
Similarly to Monday and Tuesday, the protesters blocked the junction of Bajcsy-Zs. Road, Andrassy Avenue and Jozsef Attila Street, leaving only one lane in each direction for traffic to pass. The blockade has caused jams on Grand Boulevard and along the Danube’s Pest-side embankment, too.
Taxi drivers started their demonstration on Monday morning, urging government action against ride-hailing service Uber.
