Letterkenny Taxi spokesperson backs national protest

The Letterkenny Taxi Owners' Association is backing calls for an all out action by taxi drivers. Spokesperson Hugh Mc Fadden says they are backing the Irish Taxi Council in a dispute with the Taxi Regulator which has seen the regulator's Dublin office occupied by two ITC members.

The taxi council claims its members are being put out of business, and nothing is being done to address spiralling cost increases wehich are crippling the taxi sector.

Hugh Mc Fadden now says action, up to and including blockades of towns across the country, may have to be the next step.
