Convoy truck-driver John McLaughlin, who owns JML Transport, had planned to bring dozens of trucks into Dublin city centre to protest at rising fuel prices.
But having met with Gardai, the businessman has decided not to go ahead with the protest.
“I think the Gardai already have enough headaches with the Queen’s visit without us adding to them. I think it would have done our cause more harm than good,” he said.
However Mr McLaughlin said he WILL press ahead with plans to protest during next week’s visit of US President Barack Obama.
The Donegal haulier, who has already led protests to Leinster House, was due to meet with dozens of truckers tonight to discuss plans for their protest.
“We are deadly serious about this. We have been left with no alternative. The Government keeps putting us on the long finger.
“We want the world to know that drivers are being taxed off the road and we will not sit by and watch that happen,” he said.
