If you were caught you probably would be taken in and charged with hit and run or something similar and then they would let you fight it out in court. Of course this depends on the cops and the state. The exact opposite could happen too, you could get away with nothing but a stern lecture from a cop who thought you did them a favor.

Both scenarios happen. So it all depends on who is protesting and what state it is in, and then how you drove through them and why.

Well I live in a state that ... Uh... don't much like them there kind of protesters... if you catch my drift. So it'd be probably closer to a stern talking too.

Probably. Unless some political dickweed wanted to kowtow to said protesters in the hopes of saving face or getting re-elected.

I wouldn't do it unless I was very seriously worried about my safety, or if I had a dash cam and was confident I could claim self defense.

I seen one protest video (years ago) where someone was simply creeping their truck slowly through a protest line and the idiots thought he would stop if they laid down in front of the truck. Now understand that they didn't run 20 feet out in front and then laid down. No they just dropped in front and there was no way for the driver to tell what they were doing or where they were. Yeah, a few people got run over.

Found it - Anti-abortion protesters.

Something like this will lead to more than a talking to.
