I was taught as a kid that you pull over for funerals and ambulances --- out of respect in both cases, the one being respect for death and the other being respect for the struggle to save a life.

Now, this came from my dad, who although northern born spent several years of his childhood in Georgia.

On the other hand, my great-uncle Charlie, who was raised in Michigan by Scottish immigrant parents, not only pulled over for a funeral, but if he was out walking and one went by he would stop, face the street, take off his hat, and stand with his head bowed and his hat held over his heart until the procession had gone by. I once asked him why he did that if he didn't know the guest of honor, and he said, "Respect for the dead."
