Default NC to allow drivers to go through protesters

Blocking the road in NC may soon become a quick way to end up in the hospital or morgue.

The question remains, will these idiots continue their displays of idiocy, or will this become a national sport. Add in the idiots like Dragon Lord and things may get a bit dicey.

It won't allow people to run down protesters blocking a road. But it will absolve anyone involved in an accident from civil liability due to the stupidity of the protester blocking a major thoroughfare.

I am more concerned about "protesters" who are actually thugs who threaten drivers. This has actually happened in a number of cases in the US.

Due care, honking ones horn, visually attempting to communicate (waving them out of the way), moving very slowly, etc.

No you cannot drive like a bat out of hell and mow them down. Balls in your court protester.
