Think something like this was posted previously. Anyway, saw a couple of these this morning.

The first one:
The second one, which was way, way longer than the first, and caused a lot of traffic by driving on the middle lane, preventing vehicles on both sides from overtaking:
Sana naman sa rightmost lane sila. Also, you can see that the bikes that these "rent-a-cops" are using fall way below the 400cc limit of the SLEX, and that the diplomatic vehicle has an illegal red light beacon (or I think that's what they're called) on top.

I mean, I'm all for respecting the dead. But it's no excuse to inconvenience others, since they are using a public road.

Heh, be glad you aren't in Cavite, where some (most?) main roads only have two lanes, but a church and a cemetery each. And every Sunday there's a funeral that goes at 5KPH. I don't know if it goes that way in other provinces, but it sure is that way here.

My late grandfather specifically stated that when he dies we don't run his funeral procession through or across the main road. And that's exactly what we did.

Yes, respects for the dead, but frankly the people who don't know the dead guy don't care about the dead guy. They're late, and wasting gasoling idling around.

He sounds like quite the sensible guy.

Another funny thing about this is that some of the drivers in the procession seems to think that they shouldn't allow other vehicles to cut in, so that they can get to the other side. Nakaka-abala na nga, nagdudupang pa!
