Hundreds of taxi drivers blocked roads in Brussels Tuesday, demanding the government drop plans they said would make it easier for Uber and other ride-hailing apps to operate there.Traditional taxi drivers have objected to Uber in markets across the world, accusing it of taking their business unfairly without having to meet the same insurance and licensing costs.In Brussels, protesters said they were already losing business to Uber and were angry about a proposed creation of a new license that they felt would make things even worse by putting ride-hailing drivers on the same level as them.Uber decided in 2015 to suspend its UberPOP service using amateur drivers in Brussels after a court ordered it shut down and instead uses professional licensed drivers.
