The blockade was in response to what the Porteadores del Servicio Especial Estable de Taxi (Seetaxi) say is “an attack” on their services by the Policia de Transito (traffic police).

“They are targeting against Seetaxi members, confiscating license plates when the agreements are not yet signed by a judge. The CTP (Consejo de Transporte Publico) and its director Mario Zarate is using the Policia de Transito to hit back at us,” said German Lobo, president of Seetaxi.

Lobo said the CTP is not “respecting the agreements” and “we don’t see them going after Uber, who also like us work informally”.
