A few dozen truckers are circling the capital beltway as part of a government protest.

The group, dubbed "Ride for the Constitution," hit the streets Friday morning.

The truckers plan to drive the 64-mile beltway surrounding the nation's capital in eight hour shifts until Sunday afternoon.

The group's Facebook page says the organized ride is in protest of "corruption" -- as well as to show general dissatisfaction with the government.

Police stopped four truckers driving side-by-side, slowing traffic, but say there have been no other major incidents.
