At 10 a.m. this morning, Toronto police tweeted a warning about the protest and said the route would create a "traffic disruption."

Not only did the trucks take over the streets, but their loud honks grabbed plenty of attention as well.

This isn't the first time this has happened — the dump trucks also made headlines when they paraded on December 10. 

The truck drivers are protesting changes to the Safe, Productive, Infrastructure-Friendly legislation, which says some dump-truck drivers need to pay up to $40,000 to retrofit older vehicles.*

The legislation takes effect on January 1, 2021.
