New Rules for the Road, Texas Style

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in My Kind of Driving

If you didn’t know, let me tell that Texas implemented new rules for the road on Sept 1, 2011:

  • Tow trucks have now been added to the slow down or move over laws, which require drivers to slow down 20 miles per hour below the speed limit, or to vacate the lane closest to the stopped emergency vehicle that has emergency lights activated if the road has multiple lanes traveling in the same direction. (House Bill 378)
  •  Speed limits will now be the same during night and day driving, and separate speed limits for trucks have been eliminated. The maximum speed limit on state highways may be raised to 75 miles per hour if approved after a finding by TxDOT that the increased speed would be reasonable and safe following an engineering and traffic investigation. (House Bill 1353)
  •    A driver may not allow a child under 18 to ride in a watercraft while it is being towed on a street or highway. This does not include watercraft being towed on a beach or in a parade.
    (House Bill 2981)

These rules were put in affect to encourage mature driving and to promote driver safety amongst drivers on the millions of miles of roads across Texas. If you need a refresher course on other rules of the road DefensiveDriving.com has several state approved driver safety course to choose from.   Whether it’s for point reduction, ticket dismissal, or fleet driver training, DefensiveDriving.com is your online driver solution.
