Do drivers pull over when a funeral procession drives by?
in my city, when there is a funeral procession driving to a graveyard, we pull over and wait till they pass before continuing but i've noticed that some cities don't do that, do people in your city pull over?
No, we live fairly near the cemetary and I cannot remember the last time I saw anyone slow down, yet alone pull over
It depends. In my city, if it is a two lane road, everyone in opposite lane pulls over out of respect. But, if it is 4 lane or more, everyone just keeps going.
Yes they do. I don't live in a city, but in our large towns and my village and the surrounding ones everyone slows down or pulls in and they wait until the procession has past. It's just having a bit of respect and manners.
You've reminded me of how common a practice that used to be. I hope it is still the practice, it is such a considerate thing to do.
I remember as a child that was an automatic thing to do. That is to pull to the side when a funeral procession is going by. But today it seems people are in a hurry to do everything. They will cut through a procession and go about their business if they do not see a police escort.
I have felt like doing the same thing when the procession seems to have an usually large number of cars in the procession. I feel impatient too but out of respect for the family and deceased person I wait until it ends or I make a U-turn when I can. But I will not cut through the procession. I think that is disrespectful.
Yes, you are supposed to. The first time it happened to me I did not realize and then some guy was yelling out of his truck at me to pull over. A funny experience.

One thing that bugs melike nothing else is speeding drivers. I occasionally go over the limit, and even then slightly. But it seems no matter what speed you do, someone is overtaking. If it were by by a little, I guess I would not mind, but it'son the verge of insane.Doing 80 in a 60 zone....or 120...

I'm an Englishman living in the US and when I first moved to the US everyone respected the president, and while people didn't agree with the president at times, there was no witch hunt to destroy his reputation.Now, with the press and with many political groups all we do is look at the negative...
