When approaching a T intersection while traveling on the street ending at the intersection, you must stop and yield the right-of-way to vehicles on the crossroad. Only proceed when it is safe to do so.
You should never start a left turn until you can see that all the lanes you need to cross are clear and that you can safely make the turn.
Drivers must yield to pedestrians when they are crossing at any intersection without a traffic light, whether or not there is a crosswalk.
"Highway hypnosis” happens when you stare straight ahead at the roadway for long periods of time and stop actively scanning ahead, behind, and around your vehicle. This can lead you to zone out, making you very likely to crash into traffic slowing or stopping ahead of you.
A steady red traffic light indicates that drivers must come to a complete stop. Driving through a red light is against the law and is extremely dangerous. Drivers may turn right on a steady red light if there is no sign prohibiting a turn on red.
When driving on a two-lane roadway or undivided highway, you must yield to an emergency vehicle using its lights and/or siren, regardless of the direction from which it is approaching. Immediately drive as near as possible to the right side of the road and stop, taking care not to stop within an intersection.
When parallel parking your vehicle, your wheels should be within 18 inches of the curb. Only park where you will not be disruptive to traffic and where drivers can clearly see your vehicle from every direction.
You may not be able to drive well if you are worried, excited, crying, angry, or depressed. Emotions can distract you from your driving because your mind is focused on something else. Take time to calm down and get focused before driving.
Traffic flow is controlled by pavement markings, traffic islands, signals, and signs. These devices inform drivers of conditions on the roadway and help guide drivers safely to their destinations. You must always obey traffic signs, signals, and pavement markings.
If you experience a tire blowout, do not immediately apply the brakes. Grip the steering wheel firmly and steer to remain in your traffic lane. Reduce your speed gradually by releasing the accelerator and staying off the brakes. Once you are moving very slowly, apply the brakes lightly and pull off the road into a safe area.
Two solid yellow lines down the center of a two-way road mean that neither lane of traffic may cross the lines, unless they are turning off of the roadway. A driver can cross double yellow lines when turning into or out of a driveway or entrance to a business. No passing is allowed over a solid yellow line.
Lane control signals are used when the direction of the flow of traffic in a specific lane changes throughout the day. They are used to show which lanes of traffic are open and closed, as well as to show if toll booths are open or closed. When a lane control signal contains a steady yellow X, drivers should clear the indicated lane because the signal is about to change to a red X.
Use low beam headlights when driving at night and following closely behind another vehicle or within 500 feet of a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction. Use low beam headlights when driving in fog, rain, dust, sleet, or snow.
A flashing yellow light means that you should proceed through the intersection slowly and with caution. Scan your eyes across traffic in both directions.
On slippery roads, you should increase your following distance. It may take more time to stop your vehicle than it would under normal conditions.
Warning signs are normally diamond-shaped and yellow, although orange warning signs are used in work areas. Such signs warn that you are approaching a hazardous location or an area where special rules apply.
If you are involved in a crash that is not investigated by a law enforcement officer and the crash has not resulted in injury or death of a person or damage to property of $1,000 or more, you must make a written report of the crash and file it with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) no later than the 10th day after the date of the crash.
If you are turning onto a one-way street, enter into the lane that interferes the least with other traffic. Do not make a dangerous turn into traffic.
Some highways reserve the left lane for vehicles with two or more occupants. These High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes are identified by signs and diamond pavement symbols.
The exhaust system carries exhaust gas out of the vehicle and prevents fumes from entering into the passenger compartment. To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, keep your exhaust system free of leaks. Replace all defective parts immediately.
If you hear a siren or an air horn close by but do not know exactly where the emergency vehicle is, safely pull over to the right side of the road and stop until you are sure it is not headed toward you.
Before leaving the scene of an accident, everyone involved should provide their name, address, registration information, and insurance information to the other drivers. If anyone has been injured in the accident, reasonable assistance should be provided.
Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign alerts drivers to an upcoming intersection.
You should always be cautious when passing a bicycle because the cyclist may have to swerve into traffic to avoid an object on the road. Always be particularly careful when driving near bicyclists.
Pennant-shaped warning signs like this are only used to indicate a no passing zone.
When approaching a roundabout, slow down. A roundabout is designed to be driven at a low speed.
You should not park within 20 feet of an intersection. An improperly parked vehicle may cause a crash.
If you are operating a motor vehicle that collides with and damages an unattended vehicle, you must immediately stop and either find the owner of the vehicle or leave a written note. Written notice of the accident should include the driver's full name, address, and a description of the circumstances of the collision.
You must not follow a fire truck responding to a fire alarm at a distance closer than 500 feet. You must not drive or park your vehicle within the block where a fire truck has stopped to answer a fire alarm.
If another driver is threatening you or intentionally driving dangerously around you, remain calm and try to put as much distance between the two of you as possible. Slow down and let them pass. Do not make eye contact and do not make obscene gestures.
