A group of New York City taxi drivers say they are going to strike for at least two days in September to protest a regulation calling for all city cabs to be equipped with GPS tracking technology. Starting on Oct. 1, all 13,000 taxis must have touch-screens and GPS when they come up for inspection. The expense of outfitting the vehicles -- between $2,500 and $5,000 each -- and, perhaps more importantly, the perceived intrusions on privacy are the reasons for their ire.

hi,
the privacy been touched or violated here might be a point but it is an excuse.
with good seminars i do think the concernees would have accepted it without any trouble. GPS is very important when transportation is concerned. GPS is having advantages ones won't even imagine it has helped many passengers and also cars owners, and will continue to help. accepting it will be the best decisions ever taken by all those going for strike or refusing to use it.
