When driving in an alley, the speed limit is 15 miles per hour. If a different speed limit is posted, follow the posted speed limit.
If you are stopped at a railroad crossing with more than one track, do not start moving as soon as a train passes. Wait until you have a clear view down all tracks before you start across. Even where there is only one track, do not start across immediately after a train passes; check again for another train that may be approaching.
It is against the law to read, write, or send messages on a cell phone or other portable wireless device. If your cell phone rings, do not answer the call or respond to the text message. Convictions for violations of this law are subject to fines.
In many collisions with motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians, drivers reported that they were looking but still did not see the smaller vehicle or pedestrian. These can be more difficult to spot in traffic than passenger vehicles because they are smaller, may move faster, and have less noticeable lighting. To prevent collisions with these smaller and less protected road users, drivers should always be alert to the presence of motorcycles, bikes, and pedestrians.
Drivers must always yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian when the pedestrian is a blind person who is using a white cane or guide dog.
Diamond-shaped signs warn drivers of existing or potential driving hazards. You will usually see these signs in yellow or orange.
If you arrive to an open intersection at the same time as a vehicle to your right, you should yield the right-of-way to that vehicle. You may then proceed when it is safe to do so.
It is against the law to consume or possess any alcoholic beverage while on a public road or sidewalk. Additionally, storing an open alcoholic beverage container in an area of a motor vehicle normally occupied by the driver or passenger is prohibited on any public road.
Drinking coffee will not reduce your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). While it may help you to stay awake, it cannot change your BAC or make you sober.
You must pull over to the right edge of the road and stop for an emergency vehicle with flashing lights, regardless of whether it is approaching you from behind or from the opposite direction.
If there are two railroad tracks next to each other, watch for a second approaching train after one train passes. Do not begin to cross the tracks until you’re sure no train is approaching from either direction on either track.
You may use a cell phone to contact law enforcement or in an emergency. If you must make a call, pull safely off the road and make the call. Try to keep the conversation short or have a passenger make the call for you, if possible.
Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign tells drivers that they may encounter traffic coming from the opposite direction.
The driver traveling on the frontage road of a controlled-access highway must yield the right-of-way to a vehicle entering or about to enter the frontage road from the highway. They must also yield the right-of-way to a vehicle leaving or about to leave the frontage road to enter the highway.
This sign indicates that the overpass ahead has a low clearance. You should not proceed if your vehicle is taller than the height shown on the sign (in this case, 13 feet 6 inches).
The more distance between your vehicle and others, the more time you will have to react if another driver makes a mistake. Keep a minimum following distance of two seconds when driving slower than 30 mph, under normal conditions.
Being fatigued while driving is similar in danger to driving under the influence of alcohol. If you begin to feel tired while driving, the best thing to do is to stop driving.
This sign warns of the presence of a hill ahead.
When driving on a numbered highway outside of an urban district, the speed limit is 70 miles per hour. If a different speed limit is posted, follow the posted speed limit.
After stopping at an intersection, take the extra time to check for crossing traffic and bicyclists before moving. It is recommended that you look left, then right, then left again before entering the intersection.
Driving more slowly than the flow of traffic can be hazardous. If you are on a two-lane, two-way road and driving so slowly that traffic is backing up behind you, you are required to pull off the road and let the other vehicles pass. Only drive significantly under the speed limit when conditions require it.
Circular traffic signs indicate upcoming railroad crossings. This sign tells drivers that they are approaching a railroad crossing and should be looking for signs of an oncoming train.
You must yield to any transit vehicle that is signaling to pull back onto the main roadway after it has stopped to load or unload passengers. Change lanes, slow down, or stop to allow the bus safe re-entry into traffic.
Tractor-trailers take longer distances to stop than smaller cars traveling at the same speed. A fully loaded tractor-trailer may take almost 400 feet to come to a complete stop when driving at 55 mph.
You should slow down as you enter a curve and increase your speed gradually as you exit. Increasing your speed as you enter a curve will make it more difficult to control your vehicle.
In Texas, fines for all traffic violations occurring in a construction or maintenance zone are doubled if workers are present and warning signs are present in advance of the work zone.
A red flashing traffic signal has the same meaning as a stop sign. When approaching a red flashing signal, come to a complete stop and proceed when it is safe to do so. A stop sign may sometimes also be posted where this signal is located.
Don’t cut in too quickly after passing a large vehicle. Look for the entire front of the vehicle in your rearview mirror before changing lanes and do not slow down. Truck and bus drivers need nearly two times more room to stop than other drivers.
This sign indicates that a divided highway begins ahead. The road will split into two one-way roadways separated by a median or divider. You must keep to the right.
This sign indicates that the shoulder is lower than the road in the area ahead. If you drift off of the roadway and one wheel drops onto a low shoulder, do not slam on the brakes or steer sharply to try to get back onto the roadway. This could easily cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
