to the Right (also from the Texas Department
of Public Safety’s handbook)
In Texas and many other states,
you may pass on the right only when conditions permit
you to do so safely, such as:
- The road is clear of parked
vehicles or other things and is wide enough for two
or more lanes in each direction.
- You are on a one-way road.
- You may pass on a paved shoulder
when the vehicle you are passing is slowing or stopped
on the main traveled portion of the highway, disabled,
or preparing to make a left turn.
- Do not pass on the right by
driving off the paved portion of the highway.
