The great "Slow Roll of 2019" took place Thursday afternoon to great fanfare! It was a triumph for truckers, a raging success!

"What constitutes a raging success?" no one has asked. 

Well, it basically means that approximately 4.5 truckers got out on 465 today and stayed the hell out of everyone's way, which was most GREATLY appreciated by commuters. 

Thursday's historical protest was in response to government regulations, which have pushed droves of drivers out of the industry in recent years. Specifically, truckers are six shades of pissed about the new electronic log books, which not only threaten drivers' constitutional rights, but also their ability to cheat on their hours.

A local trucker and WIBC listener called into the Hammer and Nigel show to share his perspective on "Slow Roll 2019" Thursday afternoon. Gather the family around your device of choice and have a listen:
