Durban taxi operators block major roads over impoundment of long-distance taxis

# Durban taxi operators have blocked major roads like Umgeni Road near Durban Station and the N3 near Pavilion Mall, causing significant traffic congestion. The demonstrations are a result of frustrations over the impoundment of long-distance taxis due to delayed permit approvals by the Department of Transport. Law enforcement, including Durban Metro Police and the SA Police Service, is managing the situation. The drivers are calling on the department to address this matter. The N3 remains gridlocked in both directions.
