Virginia State Police say they will not interfere with the line of tractor-trailer drivers that will intentionally clog the inner loop of the D.C. Beltway this morning and throughout the weekend. Even so, at about 8:50 a.m. today, four commercial vehicles began driving side-by-side across all four northbound lanes of I-495 on the Inner Loop slowing traffic to 15 mph. Virginia State Police stopped the four tractor-trailers at the 53 mile marker and warned them not to impede traffic. No summons/ticket was issued. The tractor-trailers were then allowed to proceed on their way.
Hundreds or thousands could take part in this weekend's "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" rally to express frustration with lawmakers. Organizers say they will stay in the right lane and leave room for emergency vehicles to get by. Get more at http://www.easternstate.org/halloween
