I was driving Highway 101 North around 2:30 pm this afternoon and at every overpass, there was a firetruck with 3 firefighters standing atop their truck looking south down Highway 101. This was occurring from Goleta to Montecito.

Is this some sort of drill or tribute? I am curious to know if someone knows any info. Thanks!

We watched the motorcade from the Los Carneros overpass. There was what looked like a CHP cruiser at the head of the motorcade, a Ventura County fire engine, a motorcycle officer, and lots of other first responder vehicles all with their lights on. Traffic was temporarily backed up as drivers would pull over, but a fitting tribute indeed.

There was a story on Noozhawk. https://www.noozhawk.com/article/procession_carries_corrections_lieutenants_body_through_santa_barbara_count The body of Lt. Derrick "Bo" Taylor, killed in the Las Vegas shooting, was being returned to Grover Beach for burial. The tribute brought tears to my eyes.
