In recent years, leftists have adopted the tactic of blocking streets and highways for protests. It’s a stupid and dangerous practice that could get someone killed.
Now in North Carolina, drivers who decide to push through the protests may be protected by a new law.
FOX News reports:
NC motorists who hit protesters blocking roadways will be legally protected under proposed bill
Drivers in North Carolina might soon be allowed to plow their cars through protesters forming human walls on the road.
A new bill approved by the state House will legally protect motorists who hit protesters blocking the road—as long as they “exercise due care,” according to The News & Observer in Raleigh.
House Bill 330 was approved in a 67-48 vote late last week. The bill was drafted in response to protests in Charlotte that paralyzed traffic last fall.
“I became concerned for drivers after watching the recent protests which turned into riots in Charlotte and other cities,” Republican Rep. Justin Burr, the bill’s sponsor, said to Fox News. “In a number of cases the protests turned riots resulted in violence and the terrorizing of unsuspecting motorist, their passengers and property.”
“I strongly believe North Carolina should protect law abiding drivers from facing civil liability if a protester is injured while attempting to illegally block traffic on a public highway or interstate.”

Think twice before blocking the roads again, leftists!
