PIKESVILLE, Md. – The Maryland State Police continue to monitor developments in preparation of potential commercial, recreational and passenger vehicle convoys planned by drivers from across the country. 

Law enforcement, transportation and emergency management agencies in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. are jointly assessing the situation as it develops. Agencies will allocate personnel and additional resources based upon analysis of the situation to ensure safety on our roadways and minimize potential traffic disruptions throughout the region. 

In addition to road patrol troopers, troopers from our Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division and Automotive Safety Enforcement Division are prepared to assist public safety partners in Maryland and neighboring states to address any violations of law and to maintain the free flow of traffic.

Citizens are also reminded of the potential for misinformation and disinformation that could be spread on social media in regards to potential protests. Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in the region will provide pertinent updates as needed. Follow roads.maryland.gov for the latest traffic alerts.

  1. “Citizens are also reminded of the potential for misinformation and disinformation that could be spread on social media in regards to potential protests. Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in the region will provide pertinent updates as needed.”

    Yes, we are now on a “AS NEEDED TO KNOW” information basis. Disinformation? The pot calling the kettle black.
    FJB!!!

  2. Stop every vehicle in the convoy. Ticket every driver. Impound every vehicle and auction them all off. Donate the monies to charity.

    End of convoy. End of problem.

    1. They drove around the Beltway twice today. Kept with traffic about 55 mph. Stayed in one lane. How very Hitler(ish) to suggest stopping everyone, issuing tickets, impound and auction vehicles. You sound like a Commie Idiot.

      1. Their expressed intent was to slow and or stop traffic on the Beltway because they don’t like mask mandates. Mask mandates are ending. Disrupting the flow of traffic on a major artery like the DC Beltway is inherently stupid and potentially dangerous. So, yeah, ticket them, impound the vehicles and make them walk home.

  3. What exactly are they protesting and why are the accepting welfare, I mean donations? Shouldn’t they be working?
