    I'd consider using your vehicle as a weapon unacceptable in either situation.

    I wonder, what if someone in the protest was armed? Would you consider it "fearing for their life?"

    I really don't think passing a car like that is illegal. Remove the protesters and just have a distracted driver or a stalled car, a car behind it can pass on the right because the passed car isn't moving at all. What you're referring to regards two cars both moving.

    And "plow" is a sexual reference outside of farming.

    What makes you think non of them were armed?

    Everyone in the intersection was blocking traffic, a crime. Where are your bios on them?

    Passing on the right is illegal. AFAIK, there is no "I'm in a hurry" exception

    AFAIK, jaywalking is not a crime and one crime does not negate another.

    Can the gas chambers and ovens be far behind? I suppose anti Semitism is back in vogue. Anti Semitic president. Anti Semitic followers. It fits. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    Imagine that! We agree. It is best for the driver to resolve his dangerous situation as best he can before he is assaulted.

    It's a lane change, not a pass, because it happened on the same side of the yellow line.

    A pass is on two-lane road with traffic moving in both directions, where you cross a yellow line onto the other side of the road into the lane for oncoming traffic. A lane change is when you cross a white line and move to lane for traffic moving in the same direction. If you stay in lanes for the same direction of traffic then it's not a pass, it's a lane change, and that's why the driver wasn't cited with a moving violation for going around the car before entering the crowd.

    Passing on the right, aka "cowboy passing", is when you cross a white line and go off the road to pass someone.

    It's a misdemeanor, actually:
    https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=169.21
    Subd. 3.Crossing between intersections.
    (a) Every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or at an intersection with no marked crosswalk shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.
    (b) Any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.
    It's an additional crime to deliberately obstruct public right-of way, roads, or public access with a protest: http://www.aclu-mn.org/files/9313/28...testRights.pdf
