Road Blocking Protest Plans Hit Major Traffic Jam in North Carolina

As liberal protestors across the nation continue to grow bolder, their tactics have caused grave concern not only for bystanders, but for the lunatic protestors themselves.

One such tactic, that has been increasingly used by everyone from Black Lives Matter to the #NeverTrump crowd, is the blockading of major roads and highways.  In fact, the tactic has grown so popular that cities such as Atlanta, Georgia deploy police to the on ramps at the first sign of civil disobedience.

It doesn’t take much computing power in the ol’ noggin to realize just how foolish and dangerous this maneuver can be.  Civilians attempting to block traffic on highways, where vehicles are clipping by at intense rates of speed, often at night, is a recipe for disaster.  Not only do we have protestors in the line of fire, so to speak, but drivers experiencing this phenomenon are also put into the hot seat.  Now, North Carolina is taking a legal step to protect those drivers from the possible unintended consequences of lunatic liberals throwing themselves into the fast lane.

“A bill that has passed North Carolina’s House of Representatives would shield motorists who unintentionally hit protesters blocking roads from civil liability, WFAE reported.

House Bill 330, introduced by Rep. Justin Burr, ‘provides that a person driving an automobile while exercising due care is immune for civil liability for any injury to another if the injured person was participating in a demonstration or protest and blocking traffic.’

“It passed the House of Representatives by a 67-48 vote on Thursday, the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

“’As we’ve seen, time and time again, as folks run out in the middle of the streets and the interstates in Charlotte and attempt to block traffic,’ Burr said. The Republican said he wants to make sure ‘drivers don’t have to fear driving through Charlotte or anywhere in North Carolina.’”

As much as this seems like a common sense piece of legislation, our litigious society certainly favors the protestors in the case of an unintentional injury, even though the activity being performed is inherently dangerous and completely illegal.  North Carolina has been a champion of no-nonsense legislation in recent years, and House Bill 330 is no exception.
