We sometimes joke about running over protestors but I disagree with this bill and even if passed I doubt it will get very far in the courts.

RALEIGH (WTVD) --
North Carolina's House of Representatives is set to pass a bill that would grant civil lawsuit immunity to a driver who hits someone protesting on a public street.
House Bill 330 has passed on two readings and is expected to get final approval Thursday. It would then go to the Senate for consideration.
The proposal comes after several protests in recent years have taken over streets in the Triangle. Some have even shut down the Durham Freeway.
