Truckers Protest Government Shutdown

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) --Truck drivers are taking their dislike for the government shutdown to the Capital Beltway.

The group is dubbed "Ride For The Constitution."

The truckers plan to drive the 64-mile Beltway surrounding the nation's capital in eight hour shifts until Sunday afternoon.

They organized the ride in protest of what they call "corruption" in the government.

Cops stopped four truckers driving side-by-side, slowing traffic, but say there have been no other major incidents.
