Re: Security Guards Stopping Traffic
The guards may or may not be authorized by law, but the consequences for disobeying them could be catastrophic. Consider, as an example, a Jaywalker. It may be illegal to cross where there is no crosswalk, but if you actually run over a jaywalker, and your defense is that they had no legal right to be there, and, therefore, you did not have to stop, guess who's going to lose? The same would apply, IMHO, to your situation. If the security guard signals you to stop, and you refuse, and there is a resulting collision, and your defense is that the guard had no legal right to try to stop you, guess who's going to lose that one?
Just my $.02,
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
