A convoy of trucks took to Long Island roads this morning.
The group is one of many across the country protesting vaccine mandates.
The convoy is started at the Ronkonkoma train station and is heading to upstate Newburgh.
"It's invigorating and it just makes me feel good. And even when we came two days ago, we were putting up the American flags. They were beeping ... it’s just very patriotic and that’s what we stand for, just freedom,” says Wendy Yao, an organizer.
Groups of supporters are expected to be on many of the overpasses on the Long Island Expressway this morning from Exit 60 all the way to the city.
