Seasoned Maryland car accident lawyers know the rules of the road changed if a lawfully constituted funeral procession is involved [i.e. a vehicle has headlights, flashers and a prominently displayed funeral placard]. So long as the lead vehicle has entered the intersection on a green or yellow, vehicles may proceed through that intersection, even against a red light. Maryland car accident lawyers that have litigated accident cases in these instances, know that a vehicle not in the procession cannot cross the path of the procession, even if it has the green light.
