Several arrests were made on Thursday in connection to an illegal taxi protest down Prince George Drive in Cape Town.
On Wednesday, taxis blocked off Prince George Drive at the Military Road intersection in an attempt to stop illegal taxis from operating between Vrygrond and Blue Route Mall.
The illegal strike was reportedly caused by tensions between the Retreat Taxi Association (RTA) and Vrygrond Taxi Association (VTA) over long-standing route disputes.
The Western Cape Transport Department says they have worked closely with Saps and other enforcement officials to put an end to the strike.
The department's Siphesihle Dube explains that they have gone to the courts to stop illegal operators in the area.
