Police said the taxi drivers were angry that they were arrested and fined for not using meters.
At the press time, Rachateva police are negotiating with representatives of the taxi drivers in order to open routes for passengers.
Land transport regulations specified rate for taxi to go to areas out of Bangkok or to other provinces. They did not have to use meters.
However some taxi drivers reportedly did not follow the regulations and demanded for high fees from passengers particularly foreigners.
One of their demands was that they should be allowed to negotiate fees with passengers who wanted to go out of the capital.
However a taxi driver who joined the rally claimed that a gang at the airport which he said had police as a member forced them to use meters or face arrest unless they paid tea money to the gang.
This is the fourth time that the angry taxi drivers blocked the road to protest the similar problems.
