Truckers Revolt In D C

10.09.13 | Bob Price

If you'll be in Washington, D.C., this weekend, prepare to spend a lot of time staring at the back bumpers of tractor-trailers.  Several thousand truckers have pledged to spend Friday through Sunday slowing down traffic on the Beltway.  It’s a 55-mph protest of what organizers describe as "low wages, fuel prices, regulations, the government shutdown, the debt ceiling, President Obama and 'the corruption that is destroying America.'" The 3,000-strong convoy has been organized under the name Truckers Ride for the Constitution, and the truckers promise to let other motorists pass them if they're displaying "T2SDA" — shorthand for the group's original name, Truckers to Shut Down America — somewhere on their vehicles.
