Got my first traffic stop on the bike over with

Got pulled over for the first time this morning. When coming up the 59 South HOV and exiting westpark there is sometimes a long line waiting to squeeze into the next left turn lane. I however am usually going right and don't need to wait for that left turn lane. So most mornings I just go to the right of the cars on the mini shoulder and take my right turn to go about my business. This time there was a Metro cop waiting for the left turn lane too. I saw him, but thought no big deal. I make my right and he lights me up. I put the stand down, took off the helmet and was polite. He seemed like he was in a bad mood and was mad because I passed him up. He said "it's fine you passed the others but you went and passed me?" I told him I was not trying to be a jerk, just figured it would be alright since I was not waiting on the left turn lane. He asked if I was licensed, which I am, and asked for it. I handed it over, he took two steps towards his Goldwing, turned around, handed me my license back and said "later". Even though he was in a bad mood he was professional and I sure appreciate him letting me go.

Normally would write you for illegal passing to the right. Got one about 10yrs ago avoiding a wreck, he still wrote me up

It's nice he didn't write you up, but I don't understand his logic. If it's okay for you to pass those other cars, why was it not okay to pass him? I don't expect you to have his answer, but still. WTH?

Because he's a cop. He understands the desire to cut in front of the cars, even though it's illegal, but not the blatant disregard to the law (by passing him).

I was tempted to kick him just for you Jason, but instead decided to show him a little man . It worked.

I think he thought I was trying to show him up by passing him. That was my guess.

It is actually not illegal to ride on the shoulder when someone is turning left. Look it up. I found that one day when inquiring about lane splitting a while back.

occupied by parked vehicles and sufficient width for two or more
lines of moving vehicles in each direction; or
(B) on a one-way street or on a roadway having
traffic restricted to one direction of movement and the roadway is
free from obstructions and wide enough for two or more lines of
moving vehicles.
(b) An operator may not pass to the right by leaving the main
traveled portion of a roadway except as provided by Section
545.058.

Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1995.


545.058. DRIVING ON IMPROVED SHOULDER. (a) An

lane of traffic;
(3) to decelerate before making a right turn;
(4) to pass another vehicle that is slowing or stopped
on the main traveled portion of the highway, disabled, or preparing

(5) to allow another vehicle traveling faster to pass;
(6) as permitted or required by an official
traffic-control device; or
(7) to avoid a collision.

left of the main traveled portion of a divided or limited-access or

Probably would've gotten a ticket if you HAD been a jerk about it... showing respect always helps... oh, yeah, and having a M/C exception, and insurance....
