Taxi services in the Jordanian capital stuttered to a halt on Tuesday as drivers went on strike against ride-hailing apps such as Uber.

Hundreds of drivers parked their yellow taxis in a lot near the parliament building in Amman before gathering to voice their anger and demand that private ride-sharing companies abide by the same regulations as the taxi sector, an efe-epa photojournalist reported.

Taxi drivers in various countries have taken to protest against app like Uber, which they feel undercut their service and enjoy unfair competitive advantages.
