    Today Indiana truck drivers are expected to protest federal regulations.

    Drivers will come together in a slow-roll convoy on I-465, making two loops around Indianapolis.

    It is set to start at 11 a.m. and will take a little over two hours.

    According to officials, the protest was formed because of regulations that were put in place in 2017 that require truck drivers to use an electronic logging device that tracks hours traveling on the road.

    Drivers say these devices have forced them to have less time to deliver products where they need to go, according to our source.

    Indiana police are estimating 400 to 500 trucks will participate.

    Police saying they will monitor the protest but do not expect any traffic issues.

    Truck drivers agree to drive 45 miles-per-hour and stay out of the left lane.
