Warning to Abortion Protesters: Obey the Traffic Laws (or Else)

Do-Not-Block-Traffic-Sign-K-1809

I just got home from a visit to my doctor’s office, but had a hard time even getting there because of anti-abortion protesters at the nearby Little Rock Family Planning Clinic. The guy who appeared to be the protest-leader was talking to a man, behind the wheel, in a truck which was blocking my path. I waited for a while. He wouldn’t get out of my way. Suddenly, I saw another vehicle coming up behind me, fast; I quickly got out of the way by zipping around the truck with the “driver” who was talking to one of the protesters, rather than driving, and getting the [bleep] out of my way, as he should have done — and probably would have done, without the distraction associated with the protest.
 
I then parked at my own doctor’s office . . . but before I went inside, I called 911, with a complaint about the abortion protesters. As I told the 911 dispatcher, I recognize that they have a Constitutional right to protest abortion, but they don’t have a right to block traffic, nor create conditions which could cause a traffic accident, as very nearly happened. If I ever catch them doing something like that again, I’ll report them again, too.
 
Want to protest? Fine — that’s your right, as an American — but don’t play in traffic while you’re doing it, or I can and will call the police to report your illegal and dangerous behavior. I’ve done it before, and I’ll likely do it again.

    It is terrifying to see a vehicle flying up to you and wondering if they see you! That’s happened to me a few times and on 2 occasions, I was seriously injured. Distractions and driving- yuck! Glad you were OK.

    I guess it’s no good running them over, you’d only give them a martyr to the cause.
