One measure of opposition to the transportation sales tax in metro Atlanta will come on Saturday, July 21, when tax foes intend to stage a rolling protest on I-285. From TrafficTruth.net:
We are planning a demonstration that everyone and anyone can participate in. We call it ” Lights for Liberty Drive”
We will all converge on to 285 outer loop at 10am on Saturday morning July 21st and go counter clockwise for 2 loops or about 2 hours. We should drive the speed limit in the center lane with our flashers on. Please don’t impede traffic. We only want positive coverage. We are hoping to have hundreds of cars on the loop at the same time, coming in from all directions at the same time. Set up a caravan if we can from your area. Display signage or decorate your car in protest to the NEW TAX and send a message that we do not support it!
