DPPD has some tips for driving on improved shoulders to help stay safe.

Here is your request on Driving on Improved Shoulder (Sec. 545.058).

Did you know that you MAY drive on the improved shoulder of a roadway under certain circumstances? The rules for the LEFT shoulder are slightly different than the RIGHT shoulder. Here are the rules:

An operator MAY drive on an improved shoulder to the RIGHT… if it is necessary and can be done safely, but ONLY:
1) To stop, stand, or park
2) To accelerate before entering the main road
3) To decelerate before making a right turn
4) To pass another vehicle that is slowing or stopped to make a turn, or disabled
5) To allow another vehicle traveling faster to pass
6) As permitted by a traffic-control device
7) To avoid collision

An operator MAY drive on an improved shoulder to the LEFT of a divided or limited-access or controlled-access HIGHWAY if it is done safely, but ONLY:
1) To slow or stop when the vehicle is disabled and you were not able to get to the right shoulder safely due to the current traffic condition
2) As permitted or required by an official traffic-control device; or
3) To avoid collision.
This does not apply to:
1) an authorized emergency vehicle responding to a call (i.e. tow truck, ambulance, fire truck…)
2) a police patrol; or
3) a bicycle.

DPPD: Get a designated driver ending the streak.

The #EndTheStreakTX campaign launched by the Deer Park Police Department aims to raise awareness of the high number of traffic fatalities in the state of Texas. The campaign highlights the fact that there hasn’t been a single day without a traffic fatality in Texas since November 7, 2000, urging drivers to be more cautious on the roads. By sharing statistics and promoting safe driving practices, the Deer Park Police Department hopes to reduce the number of traffic accidents and ultimately end the streak of daily fatalities on Texas roads. The campaign serves as a reminder for drivers to prioritize safety and be mindful of their actions while behind the wheel to prevent unnecessary tragedies.
