Update: The bill failed to pass in any of the states. It would have only protected drivers who accidentally ran into protesters.
Now we are not suggesting that you go out and run people over. There was a bill proposed in Florida, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and North Dakota that relieves some reliability if drivers run over protesters while in the street.
If you remember last year a driver in a Dodge Ram was videotaped driving though a crowd who were protesting police in Durham, NC. The protesters tried to block and continuously struck the vehicle. The driver continued driving through by pushing individuals out of the way.
The police department in Durham, NC stated that they aren’t going to be pressing charges against the driver. It also turns out the protest didn’t have the proper permits to conduct any activities. When questioned one of the protesters stated they, “Does not work with the police.” They stated that they aren’t surprised that police don’t file charges when drivers run over protesters.
