Do You Know Which Driving Laws Texans Are Most Likely To Break?
In fact, a new law just went into effect Friday that ups the penalty for drivers who don't have their ID handy when stopped by the Po-Po in Texas.
Speaking of getting stopped by Johnny Law, here are the most likely reasons a Texas driver would be.
Before I read the real list, I made up my own top 10 list of reasons El Paso drivers get stopped.
- Failure to maintain lane
- Racing/unsafe driving
- Distracted driving - texting/applying makeup/reading/etc
- Running a red light/stop sign
- Right on red without complete stop
- Unsafe/damaged vehicle
- Expired inspection/registration
- No turn signal
- Failure to secure load
Though not really reasons to be stopped initially, I have a feeling a lot of drivers in El Chuco get a "no insurance" ticket and/or DUI added to whatever did get 'em stopped.
Ok, as far as the list I found online goes, here's the top 5 ...
- Not wearing a seat belt - Not restraining a child or having loose stuff in the car also applies here.
- Distracted driving - texting, putting on makeup, reading, etc.
- Mechanical issues - Broken headlights, excessive exhaust, no inspection sticker, etc ...
- Illegal Maneuvers - Burn outs, racing, etc along with (sometimes) prohibited things like U-turns or right turns on red where signs say not to.
- DUI - No explanation needed here.
There you go ... be careful out there.
