    Yes, contact with pedestrians who were obstructing the road.

    If people weren't obstructing the road, there would have been no need for him to go around the car in front of him.

    I went around cars in a similar fission 3 times today. It happens all the time. The car could have been stopped for any reason at all...distracted driver, stalled car, came to a near stop and changed their mind about where they were going trying to merge right....those were my 3 reasons for passing today at least...

    Why the first vehicle stopped is immaterial to rather or not the second vehicle can pass. If the first stopped at a controled rail-road croissing it's still legal for a car behind it to come up on the right.

    The trick is, that second vehicle then needs to stop. This one didn't, and that's where drama ensues.

    I don't know the circumstances of your drive today so I won't comment on it. It's possible that you broke the rules concerning turning and lane changing, or maybe not. I just don't know.

    However, it's clear that the lanes were obstructed in this case. If they weren't, the car in front of him would have been proceeding forward and he would have had no reason to illegally pass him on the right.

    But I've got to give you cred for non-conformity. Everyone else is agreeing that the streets were being obstructed with many saying the protesters got what they deserve for obstructing the roads. You're the only one arguing that the road was unobstructed.

    Really? How many other rallies did protesters get hit?

    The point was you can't hit people with malice just because they are in the street and in a motorist's way.

    How do you know the driver's state of mind?

    In other words...you believe the silly protesters in the street blocking traffic had nothing to do with it. This makes it clear where you stand.
