    She said all the drivers were really excited and proud about the idea of the event, and, I could even see some pride from her when she was showing us a video of it happening.
    So ya, it definitely pee'ed off some folk, but, it was their celebration and they seemed to enjoy it.
    So think logically a bit, well anyway, that's how I came to my conclusion.

    1) It looked like they were refrigerated trucks.
    2) Lots of money to pull a stunt like this, for at best some publicity, especially if it is mostly bad publicity.
    3) Didn't some vaccines arrive "yesterday".
    4) How do you even get permission to pull a stunt like that? Bribes, lots of money?
    5) Wouldn't it be the best cover up ever?

    Now look, if it was vaccines, great move. If it was only for their celebration as they claim, then I think it was super dumb and annoying, and technically illegal as the road act does not allow you to hinder traffic. I also think it was extremely selfish if they just did it to celebrate, but that is my opinion.

    Anyway, maybe we'll find out, maybe not. Btw, your friend could very well have been forced to sign an NDA, in which case they can't speak about it.

    This celebration is similar to your neighbor celebrating his 40th birthday by playing Kurt Darren at full volume till 4am in the morning.

    Celebrate in your own time and space, no need to inconvenience thousands of people across the country

    nope, wrong time of day and going in the wrong direction. I'm sure it was the misguided birthday celebration being reported

    I believe it is indeed illegal to hinder traffic for no good reason like this.
