Moments ago, on my way back to the office, I noticed a funeral procession making it's way across 10th Avenue South on 9th Street.  I always go back in time to the day we burred my father.  I give my self a moment to reflect on that day and how these people are feeling right at this moment, the same sad feeling I had while heading to the cemetery in my father's procession.

The hearse led the way with 10-12 vehicles following, all had their blinking hazards on.  As I waited, showing respect, I hoped that all would do the same.  Obviously, that did not happen.   To that one vehicle, who couldn't wait for the last 2 cars to proceed through the intersection and jumped out in front of them, shame on you!

I know, maybe they didn't know what was going on.  Maybe you should be paying more attention while behind the wheel.  Either way, I think everyone can use a little reminder of what to do when you encounter a funeral procession while driving.  It's important to approach the situation with respect and courtesy. Understanding the proper etiquette can help ensure a smooth and respectful passage for both the mourners and other motorists. Here are some guidelines on what to do when you see a funeral procession while driving:
