Notwithstanding any traffic-control device or provision governing the right-of-way, any motor vehicle in a funeral possession has the right-of-way if the following conditions are met:

(1) Each motor vehicle in the funeral procession displays lighted headlamps, tail lamps, and flashing hazard or warning turn signal lamps;
(2) Each motor vehicle in the funeral procession follows the preceding motor vehicle in the procession as closely as is safe and practicable; and
(3) The operator of each motor vehicle in the funeral procession yields the right of way to any approaching emergency vehicle when directed to do so by a law enforcement officer or when the vehicle is giving an audible or visual signal.

If any motor vehicle in the funeral procession becomes separated from the funeral procession and the funeral escort vehicle so that the procession is no longer continuous, the operator of the motor vehicle shall proceed to the destination obeying all traffic signals and general rules of the road.
