Funeral Procession Etiquette: Most states have some type of legislation governing the rules and procedures for having a procession as well as yielding to one. The following is basic information on funeral processions as well as specific information from Missouri’s Revised Statutes. All vehicles in a funeral procession should operate with their headlights and/or emergency flashers on. Occasionally, some or all vehicles in a funeral procession may be marked with a purple flag from the funeral home. The hearse is generally the first vehicle in the procession followed by the spouse or significant other. Children and immediate family follow. All friends and others are to fall in behind. The procession is often accompanied by a police escort. Cars travelling in the opposite direction of a procession may yield out of respect, but it is not required. For motorists travelling in the same direction that want to yield to the procession, they can reduce speed and, if there is ample shoulder space, they can move completely off the roadway so that cars can pass without leaving their lane of traffic. RSMo 194.503  Pedestrians and operators of all other vehicles shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle which is part of an organized funeral procession.  When the lead vehicle in an organized funeral procession lawfully enters an intersection, all vehicles in the procession shall follow the lead vehicle through the intersection. The operator of each vehicle shall exercise the highest degree of care toward any other vehicle or pedestrian on the roadway.  An organized funeral procession shall have the right-of-way at all intersections regardless of any traffic control device at such intersections, except that operators of vehicles in an organized funeral procession shall yield the right-of-way to any approaching emergency vehicle or when directed to do so by a law enforcement officer. RSMo 194.506  Vehicles in an organized funeral procession shall follow the preceding vehicle as closely as is practical and safe under the conditions.  No person shall operate any vehicle in a funeral procession without the flashing emergency lights of such vehicle being lighted.  Toll-free passage shall be given on all toll bridges, tunnels and other toll highways to all vehicles in an organized funeral procession. RSMo 194.509  Drivers of vehicles that are not part of an organized funeral procession shall NOT: o Drive between vehicles comprising an organized funeral procession (except if required to do so by a law enforcement officer). o Join a funeral procession for the purpose of securing the right-of-way. o Attempt to pass any vehicle in an organized funeral procession (except where a passing lane has been specifically provided).  When an organized funeral procession is proceeding through a red signal, a vehicle not in the funeral procession shall not enter the intersection unless such vehicle may do so without crossing the path of the funeral procession. ~sjb/21
