I'm not sure where (or if) its written in TX law, but most states and municipalities require that LEO's be in 100% compliance of the law in order to be in a position to issue citations.

I maybe wrong but they should do the speed limit and obey all laws even if the "LIGHTS" are on. The light are to clear traffic out of they're way so they dont get caught up in it. No traffic no need to speed.imo

I maybe wrong but those are the way I had explained to me some time ago, when I called a cop out.
Incorrect they are allowed 10 over that is all and that goes for all emergency vehicles I think the only exception is when in persuit

A SMART PERSON WOULDNT FOLLOW A LEO AT THOSE SPEEDS, and im sure if he's traveling that fast lights or no lights he'll be able to justify those speeds and you couldnt... So my advice is dnt do it

I hear that giant family fued buzzer goin off at your statement, the law in Texas DOES NOT state a maximum over limit for any authorized emergency vehicle, only the conditions upon when and how they may exceede, ignore signals and traffic flow. take an evoc course before making incorrect statements. and due regard is defined as "due regard to the safety of others on the road as a similarly trained person in the same situation would act"
