That is interesting because when I moved back to Texas and had to do the drivers ed class for dismissing a ticket, both instructors (one retired DPS) advised against driving on the shoulder to enable faster drivers to pass. I asked my dad (retired HPD and the person I learned to do that from) about it at the time and he told me to stop doing it as it had become unsafe.
Its legal, I do it and expect it to be done.

Now as back then, I do it when conditions are right and it can be done safely. I prefer to have really discourteous and stupid drivers in front of me where I can keep an eye on them.

Not where you are
Most “country folk” pull rt on two laners for a vehicle approaching from behind.

City folks and arseholes not so much.



I always wonder why it is the joe citizen feels HE needs to try and “enforce” the speedlimit for me.

Just GTFO the way and let folks do whatevah.

I think dad only said that because his reaction times we’re already way slower by 2000-2001 He was having huge difficulty just driving around normally, staying aware of his surroundings. Our dps friends out here all say it’s fine.
