heads up

Not sure on the accuracy of this but thought i should share

Heads up to Texas drivers as new laws go into effect this Sunday


1. Carpool lane - 1st time $1068.50 starting 7/1/07 (The $271 posted
on the highway is old). Don't do it again because 2nd time is going to
be
double. 3rd time triple, and 4th time license suspended.

2. Incorrect lane change - $380. Don't cross the lane on solid lines or
intersections.
< i'm phucked

3. Block intersection - $485

4. Driving on the shoulder - $450

5. Cell phone use in the construction zone. - Double fine as of
07/01/07.
Cell phone use must be "hands free" while driving.

6. Passengers over 18 not in their seatbelts - both passengers and
drivers get tickets

7. Speeders can only drive 3 miles above the limit.

8. DUI = JAIL (Stays on your driving record for 10 years!)

9. As of 07/01/07 cell phone use must be "hands free" while driving.
Ticket is $285. They will be looking for this like crazy - easy money
for police department.

thanks Jet, I had a hard time believing it was all true. One would think it would be all over the news if it were true.

Alert to the Public
False information has been circulating regarding new traffic laws. There are no new traffic laws going into effect in July. More specifically, there are no new laws going into effect in July related to cell phones, seat belts or carpooling. No cell phone bills were passed this Legislative session. (This misinformation started as the result of an inaccurate e-mail and incorrect information on various Web sites.) DPS has not compiled a list of new traffic laws going into effect in September at this time.

no offense, but no insurance is no insurance...I don't care how many days it was expired. If she would have hit me in that 2 day period and not had insurance...I would have been .

I kinda would've liked:

7. Speeders can only drive 3 miles above the limit.

I'd go 95mph for 3 miles and then slow down back and wouldn't get a ticket. :laughing6
