So the actual act of all of us driving together is NOT illegal as long as we leave enough room for other cars to overtake or pass any of us.

Now I think the problem we have is gathering everyone up and stoping on the side of the road. Can someone help out and browse through the Vehicle Code to see what the laws are? Here is the link to the CA VC:
I think the Gilroy caravan fails this test.. Though I think it was 2 years ago that the cop made his way allll the way thru our 140+ car caravan from behind, no problems, didn't pull anyone over
