In the center of Amsterdam, groups of taxi drivers demonstrated by blocking the road with their vehicles at several locations. As a result, traffic in part of the center was stuck for some time, as was part of public transport. One taxi driver was arrested during the protest. His vehicle has been towed away, according to a police spokesman.

There were about fifty taxis at the intersection of Weesperplein and Sarphatistraat. Drivers also blocked a few side streets with their vehicles. The mayor disbanded the demonstration because of road safety in the city.
