Two Days Of Truck Drivers Protests In D.C.

Virginia state police say they stopped four tractor-trailer drivers protesting on the Capital Beltway outside Washington Thursday morning. Police say the drivers were pulled over after they began driving side-by side across all four northbound lanes slowing traffic to about 15 mph. Police say a convoy of about 30 trucks began traveling north on Interstate 95 from Doswell Friday morning. Organizers say the truckers are protesting unconstitutional actions by the federal government, including the health care overhaul and the Patriot Act.
