Improved Shoulders

Right Shoulder

According to Texas law an operator may drive on an improved shoulder to the right of the main traveled portion of a roadway if that operation is necessary and may be done safely, but only:

    • to stop, stand, or park;
    • to accelerate before entering the main traveled
      lane of traffic;
    • to decelerate before making a right turn;
    • to pass another vehicle that is slowing or stopped
      on the main traveled portion of the highway, disabled, or preparing
      to make a left turn;
    • to allow another vehicle traveling faster to pass;
    • as permitted or required by an official
      traffic-control device; or
    • to avoid a collision.
