Hundreds of cabbies on Monday blocked traffic on Guatemala City's major thoroughfares to press their demands for ride-sharing platform Uber to be subject to the same regulation as taxi operators.

The procession arrived at city hall - which was already surrounded by a hundred police officers - at noon, coming from five different points of the capital and causing traffic congestions.

Once in the vicinity, protestors made their way to the building on foot and aboard their vehicles, honking their horns and blocking access to the area, much to motorists' dismay.

Taxi Owners Association president Alvaro Contreras demanded that the municipal government observe the regulations governing the sector and its modifications.

The union's demands are for Uber cars to be registered as taxis and submitted to inspection, as well as for drivers to pass the three courses demanded by the country's regulating body, among others.

Uber was introduced in Guatemala in December 2016.
