Abu Dhabi tells old cabs to get off the road

The Department of Transport (DoT) in Abu Dhabi has told the old white-and-yellow taxis to clear the emirate’s roads to give way to more than 8,000 new silver cabs, warning that offenders could be jailed and heavily fined. TransAD, a DoT affiliate which manages six new taxi firms, said a deadline for the old cabs ended on December 31 and drivers of these cars found operating on the road would be jailed one months and fined Dh5,000.

Right to strike?

As taxi drivers for one company in Abu Dhabi stage a mass protest, a labour camp in Dubai also downs tools. Taxi drivers in Abu Dhabi were in labour court on Tuesday trying to fight the new contract imposed by their employer.
