BREAKING: New Law Has BRUTAL News For Protesters Who Block Highways

Ever see those infuriating videos of far-left protesters blocking off highways, as if that’s what’s going to convince people just trying to go to work and live their lives to come over to their side? It’s been a favorite tactic of the Black Lives Matter movement, and was quickly adopted by anti-Trump activists during the 2016 campaign cycle.

More often than not, footage of such protests didn’t get much attention online unless it included a fed-up driver breaking through the human barriers, such as what recently happened in Durham, North Carolina.

The man in the video above wasn’t charged – and in North Carolina, it may soon be the law that if you get hit while blocking traffic, the driver will not be liable.

According to Charlotte Stories, a new bill has passed the NC House that would allow North Carolina drivers to drive through protesters who are blocking the road without being sued, as long as they “exercise due care.”

The North Carolina House passed HB 330 with a 67-48 vote.

It was introduced by Republican Justin Burr and “provides that a person driving an automobile while exercising due care is immune for civil liability for any injury to another if the injured person was participating in a demonstration or protest and blocking traffic.” “As we’ve seen, time and time again, as folks run out in the middle of the streets and the interstates in Charlotte and attempt to block traffic,” Burr said. The Republican commented that he wants to ensure that “drivers don’t have to fear driving through Charlotte or anywhere in North Carolina.”

This bill does not allow for the driver of a vehicle to target protesters intentionally,” he added. “It does protect individuals who are rightfully trying to drive down the road.”

The bill would not protect someone who, for instance, drives through a line of protesters while flooring it. It would however, protect someone like the driver in the video below, who gradually inched forward as protestors blocked the highway, and didn’t accelerate until they gave up on blocking him.[WARNING: Strong language]

Contrary to how critics will inevitably portray the bill, it does not give drivers a license to kill protesters. Of course, even if it did, any unintended consequences of such a law could be avoided by simply not forming human blockades in the middle of highways.

    As I understand the new law in NC…they can move forward slowly, until they move out of the way……however, if they get hurt while the vehicle is moving slowly, they would not be held responsible …..only if they were driving fast and plowed through. So as the car did in the video….inched forward until they all got out of the way….and then drove through and actually sped away fast. That was okay. If someone got hurt in that incident, they would not be held liable. Now that would be a good law. I hope it gets passes in every state….

      And it all boils down to this: Don’t block Highways (Federal or State) and don’t block streets………those are for vehicles to drive on…not for you to stand in the middle of.

    Its about time these animals learn that they are not the only inhabitants in this world. We need to start running these idiots over. And I don’t mean pushing thru them. Can somebody tell why these idiots are not working. Oh thats right, we are paying them not to work.
    somebody should check to see if these idiots are getting welfare and remove them from getting welfare and put them to work.

    I Agree Jim, well said. If I was traveling I would probably run over them for I would be afraid for my life. I think they ought to be arrested and put in Jail for as much time that they stand in the road.You know darn well that welfare is keeping them or they wouldn’t have time to stand in the road..The Law ought to do something about it.
