   The trucker’s slowdown is supposed to circle the Beltway on 495 and not enter into the city proper so the cameras above may prove of limited utility . However , if the truckers are effective in blocking the Beltway the activity level in DC itself should be way , way down . That in itself should be something to behold .

Here are the Montgomery County Traffic Cameras which will provide the reader with views of the northwest section of 495.
