Spanish taxi drivers strike for stricter ride-hailing app regulations

Spanish taxi drivers demanding more regulations for app-based ride-hailing services blocked access to a trade exhibition center in Madrid on Wednesday. Taxi drivers are complaining that rival drivers from ride-hailing apps compete unfairly since they do not face the same regulations and costs. One driver protesting in Madrid was reported seriously hurt after being hit by a car.

I much prefer ride-hailing apps over taxis especially when abroad. First, they're safer and second, you don't get scammed because the fee is fixed. Cheating taxi driver scumbags are found everywhere. As a passenger, I welcome better alternatives and will not choose them until they fix their act.
