A new law in Tennessee states that while drivers who injure protesters may face criminal charges, the injured protesters cannot sue the drivers in civil court.
We have previously told you about eight states that were proposing similar measures to criminalize different forms of protesting. Minnesota, Indiana, Iowa and North Dakota are considering allowing drivers to run over protesters without any civil liabilities.
Tennessee has now joined that effort to allow drivers to run over protesters who are blocking the street free from civil liability, as long as the driver exercised “due care.”
Well if you stand in the road you are going to get hit by a car. In Tennessee it is true, and the driver won't be in deep doo doo.

When I was a kid a kid, we were told not to play in the road. For some reason, it made sense to us.
