Traffic Tip: Crossing property

Dec. 24, 2011 at 6:24 a.m.

Sec. 545.423. Crossing property.

(a) An operator may not cross a sidewalk or drive through a driveway, parking lot, or business or residential entrance without stopping the vehicle.

(b) An operator may not cross or drive in or on a sidewalk, driveway, parking lot, or business or residential entrance at an intersection to turn right or left from one highway to another highway.

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

Why the emphasis on these particular traffic laws?

A lot of people assume they can simply drive onto the roadway without stopping when exiting a private drive or parking lot, which is not true as the law clearly states.

If you have a traffic law question, contact Sgt. Julian Huerta, Victoria Police Department Traffic Safety Unit, 361-485-3700.
