regardless why a vehicle stops most all states have laws that state something to the effect you are at fault if you where negligent in not watching the car in front of you and you hit it. Some laws are poorly written so you are backed into while you are at a stop light for instance you are at fault even if you can't back up and the guy in front of you slams on the gas in reverse.... also in my area they have a police or private escort that has lights simmilar to a police car/cycle at the intersection just prior to the accident so anyone approaching if you know it is a funeral prosession or not will recognose something is going on by the vehicle with flashing lights and will hopefully have enough brains to at least slow down if not stop.As I understand, TN has no laws on the subject but Chattanooga has a law saying you cant stop.
Dont know about AL..
In Ga you will get a ticket for not stopping.. The law debatably does not really say you have to so you can fight it but you will get a ticket for not stopping.
They are always escorted here by the way.
The comments on that story is what gets me... They blame the guy that got hit for stopping... The ones in front of him were stopped, he could have got around but still... The fact is that it does not matter why he stopped, the dodge truck should be in control of his truck an be able to stop cause other traffic did..
The guy trying to block traffic though was dumb, not a surprise though cause as I said, not stopping is an insult here.
