Cabdriver protest caravan clogs traffic in downtown Minneapolis
Taxicabs by the dozens clogged traffic at a major downtown Minneapolis intersection Tuesday afternoon in a dispute pitting cabbies and limousine drivers over fares at hotels.
The cabs were creeping in a single-file line from hotel to hotel, bringing other vehicles to a crawl or stop. The streets were also filling with Metro Transit buses as the afternoon rush hour approached. Police were on the scene attempting to get the cabs to move along and issuing tickets.
