If a military procession goes by, it is often accompanied by the Patriot Guard, and people will often get out of their cars and stand with their heads bowed as the procession goes by.
Absolutely. To do less is just bad breeding.

I'm a member of the Patriot Guard Riders (for almost 8 years) and have been in over 100 funeral escorts for military in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Mississippi. All of these states seem to be very respectful of the escorts of which I have been a part. Some folks even get out of their vehicle and salute, or put their hand over their heart, as the hearse and American flags pass by. I salute those folks that show respect for a veteran that has passed away or a serviceman or servicewoman that was killed in action. Additionally, whenever I meet any funeral procession, I will pull over and wait until it passes.

I always pull over, and most people do that I see. (unless the driver is oblivious). NJ

This is mostly only true for the rural areas, where motorists either slow down to almost a creep or pull over. This is how it's done in the part of SC I'm from. However, in the larger cities, you won't see it as much. I think people might slow down a little but that's the extent of it.

Nobody dies where I live or they aren't buried where I live.

Yep. Only in the south have I noticed people pull over, even on wide streets.

Just be respectful, no matter the time and place. That is all.
