Got to thank my fellow “Mutha Trucker” Alex Mai from “The Asian Mai Show” on YouTube for bringing this to my attention. Seems like “The Rumbling,” the sounds of angry drivers and air horns rising against lower rates, higher fuel costs, and tighter restrictions, is getting louder in California. Around 8:45 a.m. on Friday, 10 truckers — YES ONLY 10 TRUCKERS — brought Interstate 5 in Glendale to a full stop. Here’s his video about the trucker protest.
Some drivers even walked out onto the freeway holding signs that read “Lower diesel prices, brokers need to be controlled, ripping off customers and carriers.” I could not find out if citations or arrests were made, since highway protests are protected by the 1st Amendment. Is it just me or does this sound a lot like how the big 2018 protest in D.C. started? The sign up form for 10-4 D.C. is live for this year’s event.
So Alex, the next time you say a story won’t go national, Ol’ Rooster is going to take you up on that bet and make it go worldwide!!! Now where’s my hat???
