Echo: Truckers Plan Protest

Traffic in Washington, D.C., is usually on the slow side. But, starting Friday, some truckers plan to make it even slower.

The group of truckers, calling themselves “Truckers Ride for the Constitution,” plan to circle the Beltway’s Inner Loop in a convoy with signage asking for “restoration of our Constitution and freedoms under the law.” The group is inviting non-truckers to join them in the three-day protest.

The American Trucking Associations announced on Tuesday that it is not a sponsor or supporter in any way of the protest.

Some reports exaggerated plans of the group. On Facebook, the group said they “do not intend to arrest anyone or blockade DC until Obama is impeached.”
