As used in this Section, funeral procession means four or more motor vehicles
accompanying the body of a deceased person in the daytime, when each of such
vehicles has its headlights lighted.
A. Pedestrians and the operators of all vehicles, except emergency
vehicles, must yield the right-of-way to each vehicle which is a part of a
funeral procession. Whenever the lead vehicle in the funeral procession lawfully
enters an intersection, the remainder of the vehicles in such a procession may
continue to follow such lead vehicle through the intersection notwithstanding
any traffic control device or right-of-way provisions prescribed by statute or
ordinance, provided the operator of each vehicle exercises due care to avoid
colliding with any other vehicle or pedestrian upon the streets or highway.
B. No person may operate any vehicle as part of a funeral procession
without having the headlights of such vehicle lighted.
C. No operator of a vehicle may drive between vehicles in a funeral
procession which are properly identified while the procession is in motion,
except when directed to do so by a police officer.
