    UBER: Taxi drivers plan a strike in Prague in protest
against the Uber car-hailing service. They claim that the city
should regulate it in the same way as it does with the taxis -
the cars should be marked, have a meter and the drivers have to
pass a test of their knowledge of the city's streets.
    If Mayor Adriana Krnacova does not act on Uber by Friday
afternoon, the taxis could block some of Prague's busiest
streets after the weekend.
