SLIDESHOW: San Francisco taxi drivers stage two-hour protest at City Hall 

The streets surrounding San Francisco's City Hall turned into a pseudo-parade route on Tuesday for angry cab drivers, who staged a two-hour protest against city regulatory policies of their industry.

Scores of drivers from an array of different cab companies drove laps around City Hall, blaring their horns while chanting out protest slogans and clogging up traffic from noon until 2 p.m.

The drivers are upset about a San Francisco policy that allows companies to dock cabbies five percent for each credit card transaction. They are also angry about a recent decision to delay long-promised taxi meter rate increases and the installation of electronic waybill systems -- which track all payment and route transactions of the drivers.
