    Next time we'll elect a non-hypocrite. Except that they usually don't run for President.

    The Beltway's a nightmare any weekday, and more on Fridays, but every police agency with jurisdiction touching part of the beltway will be out in force to **** with anyone who's intentionally trying to make things worse. Saturday and Sunday less so, but Friday -- mos def.

If those guys do park their trucks in the road to completely stop the Beltway, they'll be made an example of using whatever rationalization the various police agencies in the area can make up. Fairfax County cops don't care what the law is on the average day, and if these guys try to screw up Fairfax County, the cops will care even less what the law is on that particular day. DC cops, and the various city police forces, plus Maryland and most likely Federal police agencies will all be getting their slice of the pie. You can't just close Washington DC and not expect every police authority within the Beltway to respond. That's just plain naivety. That's not the way these assholes do business. Especially not in the specific areas that would be affected. They can try to argue the letter of the law all day, but they'll be ignored and tossed in jail. If you doubt that, then you obviously don't understand reality.

    Also, these would almost certainly be empty trucks. If they have freight to deliver, they're not going to spend an extra 3 days circling DC, and they certainly aren't going to park to stop traffic.
    Law enforcement will follow the law...that's what will happen.

    They decided not to join the South. The government met and discussed it and decided to stay in the United States. They didn't join the rebellion. Also, of the MD citizens who fought, 3/4 of them fought for the United States. Only 1/4 fought against.

    Yes, and obstruction is against the law. Parking on the right-of-way is against the law. Deliberately interfering with traffic is against the law, and may be a criminal offense on the Virginia side.

    Anyways, the guy already backed down from it. Capital Beltway shutdown just a ploy for attention, trucker says - The Washington Post

    Now he claims the whole thing was just trolling for freedom.

    Having lived in the DC metro area, I am not convinced that the truckers' efforts will be noticeable against the background of the current persistent traffic jams.
    I may be wrong.

    Nice.
