A group of car rental operators in Taiwan's capital of Taipei are planning to protest a government proposal that would require car rental companies that are working with ride-hailing companies to input hourly and day-rates, Focus Taiwan reports.

If the government does not withdraw the proposal, the Taipei Passenger Car Rental Association plans to mobilize 170,000 cars and take to the streets to protest.

The car rental association claims that the new mandate unfairly favors taxi drivers. However, Ministry of Transportation and Communication officials say that the new proposal will create a more level playing field, and prevent car rental operators from taking over the taxi market.
