Qatar’s Cabinet has signed off on new draft legislation that prohibits taxi drivers from charging passengers more than the amount reflected on their meters.

The law also bans taxis from picking up a new customer if they already have a passenger, even if their destinations are similar.

According to QNA, the legislation will only apply to those who work for state-owned transport company Mowasalat.
