Years ago, there were a bunch of people protesting the national speed limit by driving 55, and not one MPH more, in circles around the Beltway. They were a minor disturbance; police monitored them but they didn't break any laws, they did their thing, some people were late to work, life soldiered on.

These guys are disorganized, of questionable sanity, and asking for 3000 people to spend thousands on travel time, lost work, a lot of gas, impound fees, and/or bail, in order to make a dubious statement for demands that won't be met. All the Likes from their Facebook page are people like who guys, who think it will be 'cool' if they pull it off, and that's about all. Besides, tractor trailers driving like fools on the Beltway is something we deal with daily - remember, for the vast majority of you mostly-midwesterners who have never lived in New York City, the Washington DC area, or maybe LA, we literally have worse everyday traffic than you have ever seen in your life. This is not going to be a big deal.

Also, C.W. McCall's best work was "Wolf Creek Pass".

Apparently they can't. About two dozen or so trucks came up from Virginia, and maybe half that down from Pennsylvania, and they drove in circles for a few hours. At one point, four of them slowed to 15 mph, and for their troubles they were pulled over; a trooper wagged his finger at them for a few minutes, and let them go. What didn't help their cause was the constant driving rain which not only most likely kept a lot of them home, but also screwed up traffic (as it always does) much worse than they possibly could.

What I wonder was, seeing as how they were planning this with big rigs, why did they not stage it on 10-4?

Incidentally, that's I-81, which runs far to the west of Washington DC. The trucks were planned to come down US-15 and I-270 from Pennsylvania, or up I-95 from Virginia. That was also taken at almost 5:00, long after the event was over.

Fail.

Doomed from the start. No one who works for a company is going to risk his career on a meaningless protest, so it's up to whatever batshit crazy wildcatting truckers are actually going to go through with it. Terrible play.
