QUEENSLAND cabbies will campaign from the driver’s seat as part of an “election of­fensive” against the Palaszczuk Government’s decision to legalise ride-sharing.

Taxi Council Queensland yesterday launched a protect program that will involve heavy campaigning in every electorate in the lead up to the election expected this year. Chief executive Benjamin Wash said it was “entirely possible” customers would see political stickers and find themselves handed other campaign material.

He said cabbies will be trained on how to best spread the message to “ensure con­sistency” across tbe board.

Mr Wash said he had sent a list of TCQ’s demands to every political party and would give them until April to re­spond, before they were shared publicly.
