Motorists in North Carolina might soon be allowed to run over protesters who choose to block roads and intersections.

According to The News & Observer in Raleigh, the state House approved a new bill last week that will legally protect drivers who hit protesters blocking the road—as long as they “exercise due care.”

Drafted in response to protests that gridlocked traffic in Charlotte last fall, House Bill 330 was approved in a 67-48 vote.
