Wed, 11 Jun 2014 18:49:06 +0000

iStock/Thinkstock(LONDON) -- Traffic in some European cities was more congested than ever Wednesday as thousands of taxi drivers took to the streets to protest the popular ride-sharing service Uber Technologies, Inc.

More than 4,000 drivers of London's iconic black cabs rallied in the city Wednesday, London transportation officials said. And there were similar protests in Berlin, Paris and Madrid, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Taxi drivers claim that Uber is operating without a legal license.
