If you’ve been wandering down Oxford Street this afternoon you might have noticed an unusual amount of black cabs crawling along the busy road at a snail’s pace. That’s because taxi drivers have brought traffic to a standstill by staging a ‘go slow’ protest, in an attempt to take on TfL. The protest was organised by The United Cabbies Group, who say that TfL need to do more to tackle unlicensed minicabs. Black cab drivers staged a similar protest last year to make TfL crack down on Uber.
If these pics are anything to go by, it’s probably best avoided!
