and here is what happens when truckers stand together;
Logging trucker Jessie Henley of Dublin, GA, told Land Line Now on Wednesday that approximately 250 trucks participated in a slow-moving convoy up Interstate 75 to Atlanta, then looped the city on Interstate 285. He said the convoy started out with about 55 trucks, but kept growing.
At one point, Henley said troopers pulled over the two lead trucks to cite them for impeding traffic. But, when the entire convoy pulled over behind them, the troopers gave up on the idea.
