Look, what will happen to Istanbul taxis (!)

Zaman Daily says:

According to new regulations issued by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, all taxis in Istanbul will have to be equipped with air-conditioning, airbags, and GPS (Global Positioning System) by the end of 2007, or else they will be banned from taxi work.Of the 18,000 taxis currently operating in Istanbul, 11,000 are still without air-conditioning. The new regulations are intended to bring Istanbul into line with regulations in European Union countries…
