Road Debris - number to call?

isn't there some number(s) to call either to the city, county or state to report road debris so they can send out a crew to clear it from the traffic lanes?

Anyone?

Cant remember the number, its on the back of your TX DL.

I'd imagine it's teh same number, if not they should be tell you who to call.

Problem is a LOT of road, not a lot of cleaners.


...and speaking from experience, stop in a safe place then go pull it off the road, if you can do it safely.
Don't be a dummy and try to pick it up while your moving. :-)

I have seen cops drive right by on the freeway. I also have seen a couple cops stop and remove stuff too. Just depends on the cop I guess. I is a nice thought to stop and remove debris, but there is a big risk of getting run over. TXDOT is suppose to handle that stuff.

I think DPS does this? I see a PU truck on Hwy290 once in a while that is stopped on the side and it looks like he is clearing stuff off the road. I have seen cops do it too but I think it is DPS' job?

Ah, found this:

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/directo...n/pr121701.htm

Excerpt:

Quote:
The number, 1-800-525-5555, is printed on the back of virtually all Texas driver licenses and identification cards. Customers of participating wireless companies¾ALLTEL, Nextel, Cingular Wireless, Houston Cellular and Verizon Wireless¾can dial *DPS (*377) free of airtime charges anywhere in Texas.

Examples of when a motorist should call the Roadside Assistance Hotline include: stranded with car problems, hazardous road conditions, debris in the roadway, suspicious activity at a rest area, and obviously intoxicated or dangerous drivers.

the same cop that didnt stop to clean up the road, would be the one that stopped to write you a jaywalking ticket when you tried to clean it up yourself.

I called the Texas Roadside assistance number (800-525-5555) to ask about this and here is the answer:

In the city of Houston - call 311
Inside other local cities - call the police department
Outside of a city - call the county sheriff department

If you call the Roadside Assistance number they will then turn around and call one of these entities.

They had a report on channel 13 today regarding Roman's accident and road debris, and this is the number they said to call to report hazordous debris.
Either that or 911 if it's an emergency.

That hotline is for all non emergency issues on the highways, not just stranded motorists.

Here is the number to TX Dot for flashing red lights and road hazards. There was a man hole size pot hole on (I45 north between HTR and Rayford) opening up. Hit it while in my company truck, called the number, and they were out there in 2 hours patching it. Was pretty impressed.

(713) 802-5662
