    re: Car plows through protesters during Ferguson rally in south Minneapolis [W:349]

    Seemed pretty clear that they hit the first protester. However, when a mob swarms your car and begins breaking your windshield and attacking your vehicle I think it may be self defense to just drive out.

    It's all kinds of stupid. They shouldn't be protesting in the street and at the same time every driver needs to check for pedestrians, especially in a crowd like that.

    I just went back and watched it a couple times...that's true...a blanket was unfolded on his hood and people were jumping up onto his car before he ever hit anyone.

    Maybe that's why he hit someone...obstructed vision and distraction.

    Fair enough

    Not in a passing zone with a broken yellow line it isn't. Please see this quote from your link for details:
    Please review the video. This was not the case here.



    Correct. A normal pass occurs on the left, and the yellow line is on the left.


    According to your link a pass on the right in this scenario is allowed because:

    If there's more than one lane for your direction of traffic, you can pass on the right all you want and this is perfectly legal and safe.
    It requires two unobstructed lanes. The lanes were obstructed.....by people.

    All of that is true. Even if it's a pass and not a lane change it's still a legal move since there was adequate pavement and space in the lane he moves into so as not to conflict with other vehicles, structures or persons. If he had 'passed' the other car, stopped, and waited for the road to clear before proceeding, he would not have don anything illegal.

    His illegal acts begin as he crosses the stop line and into the crowed and has nothing to do with any other car on the road.
    The lanes were obstructed.

    Has the driver been cited for anything?
    The police have identified him as a "suspect". The investigation is ongoing. Not exactly proof of his innocence.


    At first, yes. Not the second time, though.
    You mean just before he tried to flee the scene of his crime, and those good citizens were attempting to perform a citizen's arrest?

    Drivers are not allowed to take the right-of-way, but that doesn't mean the person in the street has it.
    Technically, you're right. It's not a question of who has right of way; It's who is required to yeild the right of way to the other

    The law says who must yield the right-of-way; it does not give any driver
    the right-of-way. You must do everything you can to prevent striking a
    pedestrian or another vehicle, regardless of the circumstances.

    The lane was not obstructed. The intersection was obstructed. Had the car stopped at the stop line nothing illegal would have occurred at all, which includes the lane change.

    Speculative.

    That's why I'm saying everyone is in the wrong. The protesters for not yielding right of way to traffic and this one driver for not yielding right of way to the protesters.

    ....and the cops for not maintaining order.

    Just because I say something against the protesters doesn't mean I support the driver's actions.

    The video evidence says otherwise. His move around the other car was not obstructed by people as the people were ahead of the first car as well. Only after completing the lane change did he make contact with pedestrians.

    Reminds me of the 1960's Chicago riots, my mom & dad going to work, they never stopped even as bricks, bottles and rocks were thrown and hit their car.

    Stopping could mean an ass beating, or worse in some cases.
