Hundreds of people showed their support for President Donald Trump Sunday as they drove from Tarrytown to Rye Playland.
Other supporters of President Trump slowed traffic on the Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge, which featured bumper-to-bumper traffic, stopped cars on the shoulder of the road and blaring music. 

Elisa Taylor, a Trump supporter, was part of the massive crowd stopping traffic on the Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge Sunday afternoon.



"It got to the point where state troopers were on foot on the bridge because you just couldn't drive. It was an amazing sight," she says. 
Not everyone was as thrilled as Taylor.
Jeff Neidhart says he was stuck in the caravan traffic for more than 30 minutes.
"They literally stopped across the bridge, including the breakdown lanes and nobody could go anywhere," he says. 
State Sen. David Carlucci is calling on state police to identify the people involved and charge them.
He said in a statement:

"What was seen in New York was aggressive, dangerous, and reckless behavior by some Trump supporters. Trump supporters are seen on social media, exiting their cars on the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge and causing danger to themselves and others in inclement weather and backing up Hudson Valley traffic. The New York State Police should be working to identify these individuals and charging them. We all have the right to show support for a presidential candidate, but we do not have the right to endanger others and break the law."
