Standardised taxi fares to be introduced nationwide

After reading this piece of news I wonder if taxi fares will be increased to Dublin rates nationwide - or if Dublin taxi drivers will strike over the fact that they can't rip us off anymore:

The taxi regulator has announced plans to introduce standardised fares throughout the country (Ireland for any of you foriegn types) later this year.

The move is part of a series of reforms announced by Ger Deering today.Mr Deering said there were currently 36 different taxi-fare structures in place, but these would all be replaced by new nationwide standardised rates in September.The other reforms include a new complaints system for customers, a centralised licensing system and extra training for drivers.
