All the texas stations and papers have talked about the new “Texas traffic laws”:http://www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=10100355&BRD=1426&PAG=461&dept_id=186027&rfi=6 which went into effect on Monday including a new “points system”:http://home.abc28.com/Global/story.asp?S=1409155 which could cause hefty surcharges for problem drivers.

I particularly find this law interesting:

bq. ??SB 193 requires drivers nearing a stopped emergency vehicle that has lights activated, unless otherwise directed by a law enforcement officer, to vacate the lane closest to the emergency vehicle, if the highway has two or more lanes traveling the direction of the emergency vehicle; or slow to a speed not more than 20 mph less than the posted speed limit when the posted speed limit is 25 mph or more; or slow to a speed not more than 5 mph when the posted speed limit is less than 25 mph. A violation is a punishable by a maximum fine of $200.??
