Taxi drivers staged their 10th protest in Belgrade on Friday, shutting down traffic in the area around the Serbian government headquarters.
They converged on the government building along the same four routes they used in previous protests.
Organizers said that they had been appealing to the government for respect of the traffic law, adding that no date had been set for talks between taxi companies and Caro which they claim is operating illegally.
The Internal Affairs Ministry said that the police would not allow anyone to block the highway running through Belgrade across one of the city’s bridges.
The taxi drivers said their protest would be more radical next week when they intend to block bridges along with more central streets which they did not do this week because of the visit by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
They said taxi drivers in other Serbian cities could join the protest next week.
