State police say turnout has been low so far for a trucker protest that was rumored to involve 3,000 big rigs.

On Friday around 7 a.m., 30 tractor-trailers sporting U.S. flags headed north from Dumfries on Interstate 95 to begin the convoy put on by the "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" group, state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said.

    Maybe the rest of the posse were too busy crashing together on I95 South.

    A whole mess of trucks doing the speed limit, unlike cars? I think that ALL the trucks should do 50 mph (that is legal) all over the beltway all weekend long. That will create gridlock alone (while some cars are trying to do 70).

    What's the difference between a whole mess of trucks trying to clog the beltway and the same number of trucks on the beltway but not trying to clog it?
