2010 Maryland Code
Subtitle 2 - Traffic Signs, Signals, and Markings
Section 21-207 - Funeral processions.

§ 21-207. Funeral processions.

(a)  Procession may proceed through red light.- Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, a funeral procession facing a red signal may continue through or make a turn at an intersection if the first vehicle in the procession already entered the intersection before the signal changed from green to red. 

(b)  Other vehicles prohibited from entering intersection.- While a funeral procession is proceeding through a red signal as permitted by this section, a vehicle that is not in the procession may not enter the intersection, even if it is facing a green signal, unless it can do so without crossing the path of the procession. When the red signal changes to green while the funeral procession is still within the intersection, a vehicle facing a green signal may proceed, but the funeral procession has the right-of-way. 

(c)  Headlights to be on.- The driver of a vehicle in a funeral procession does not have any privilege granted in this section unless: 

(1) The headlights of the vehicle are turned on; and 

(2) Subject to § 22-221 (g) of this article, the warning lamps of the vehicle are flashing.
