Whilst at a funeral a while back, the hearse had trouble coming out of the church driveway as the traffic on the road would not stop to let them carry on their way. A guest from the funeral went out onto the road and stopped the traffic and the hearse and guests then continued onto the cemetery. The priest was then telling some of us that he had the same problem a few weeks before as well and he himself went out onto the road to stop the traffic and the cops turned up and gave him a good telling off for directing traffic.
This particular church is in a area where it is safe to stop or pull over so its not like they would have been causing havoc by doing so.

What happened to the days when a person pulled over or stopped as a mark of respect. Are they in such a hurry they cant spare a few minutes.
