Much of this article definitely reads like "Revenge of the Taxi Industry:"

Ride-booking drivers currently pay class one compulsory third party (CTP) [insurance] premiums, ranging from $537 to $886.

It is expected an Uber driver who works 40 hours a week will pay about three times that amount, bringing them closer to the premiums paid by taxi owners...

Sydney taxi owners pay an average of $7,800 per year, but the Government said the changes would result in premium reductions of about 40 per cent.

Taxi Council CEO Roy Wakelin-King said the changes were urgently needed to create a fairer system. "We're paying in excess of $8,500 while Uber drivers are paying less than $800," he said.
