Truckers planning three-day slowdown protest around DC
According to USA Today, the group is expecting around 3,000 truckers to participate in the protest that will run from October 11-13. The protest is focused on the government shutdown, the debt ceiling, our politicians and "the corruption that is destroying America," but also trucker-specific issues like fuel prices, wages and regulations. You can check out the Ride for the Constitution website to see what the group is all about, but we'd recommend staying away from I-495 in the D.C. area this weekend.
