Over 100 rental car and minibus drivers parked outside the Ministry of Transportation to protest new policies which limit their ability to work with Uber, a ride sharing service.
The transportation ministry recently announced new regulations that subject all rental car drivers to stricter limits: drivers can only provide rides longer than one hour and are not allowed to make rounds on the same route.
Drivers said the new regulations are unfair and will threaten their livelihood. They plan to stage a larger protest if the government does not make any changes.
