ROME, Aug 4 (Reuters) – Italy’s government is set to issue more taxi licences as it moves to tackle a cab shortage that has irked tourists and residents across its biggest cities, a draft decree seen by Reuters showed on Friday.

The draft rules, which cabinet is expected to approve on Monday, allow local municipalities to release additional permits “to cope with an extraordinary increase in demand” linked to major events or high numbers of tourists.

But there have been “several incidents of public violence,” police said, and buses, trucks and private vehicles were set alight in a number of areas in and on the outskirts of South Africa’s second-largest city.
