Question: Do I have to yield the right of way to vehicles in a funeral procession? Answer: Yes, a vehicle in a funeral procession has the right of way at an intersection and may proceed through the intersection if the procession is led by an escort vehicle displaying flashing yellow, red or blue lights. However, a person driving in a funeral procession can’t assume the right of way and must use due caution with regard to crossing traffic. Additionally, vehicles not part of the procession shall not drive between vehicles in a funeral procession or otherwise interfere with the progress of a procession.
