Apparently some truckers are protesting by assembling in Washington, DC and attempting to tie up traffic.
No major traffic delays were reported on the Beltway during Friday’s morning commute, police authorities said, despite a protest by about 30 tractor-trailers and pickup trucks against what organize describe as excessive government intrusion.
What does that tell you about DC's economy? Truckers impede traffic by driving side-by-side on a major thoroughfare around the city, traveling at 15 mph, and they caused no major traffic delays. Remove the federal government from Washington, DC and it becomes a wastelan . . . never mind.
Also, why no delay? BECAUSE THEY WERE PROTESTING AGAINST INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT WHEN THERE WAS NO INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT OPERATING! Their timing was either way off or they intended to make a brilliant statement. I'm not certain of which.
