Is no reason to slow down to 45 mph on a 65 mph zone. Jesus Fracking Christ people, a trooper is not going to pull you over for doing the speed limit. There is no reason to drop below it.


The state trooper was in the median running radar.

In Texas it's only true if they have their lights activated. Simply quietly sitting waiting to collect more revenue from someone for going over the arbitrarily set and loosely enforced speed limits don't trigger the obligation.

If it is safe to do so.

Around here people jam on the brakes to merge, because they are afraid to drive past the cop.

I'm guessing it has something to do with your laws. Some people slow when not required just in case.

265:37-a Motorist Duties When Approaching Highway Emergencies. – <codesect style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: medium; text-indent: 0px;">When in or approaching an incident involving a fire, collision, disaster, or other emergency resulting in partial or complete blockage of a highway, or a location where a police officer has made a traffic stop, every driver other than the driver of an emergency response vehicle, shall:
I. Maintain a reduced speed.
II. Obey the directions of any authorized person directing traffic and of all applicable emergency signals and traffic control devices.
III. Vacate as soon as possible any lane wholly or partially blocked.
IV. Give a wide berth, without endangering oncoming traffic, to public safety personnel, any persons in the roadway, and stationary vehicles displaying blue, red, or amber emergency or warning lights.</codesect> <sourcenote style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: medium; text-indent: 0px;">

this law does not apply to troopers on the side of the road RADARING. you only have to slow down when lights are flashing, cars are piled up, etc. this just proves those people are stupid. I see people slam on their brakes because a cop is driving in the opposite lane of traffic. people are stupid. people get freaked out when cops are near them on the roads. I hate the morons that refuse to drive because a cop pulls up next to them at a red light. I make it a point to beat the cops off the line, accelerate faster than them, and lock my cruise control at the speed limit. some of them give me looks, I return a troll face.

In NC you're required to (attempt to) clear the right hand lane when a LEO is stopped on the right median.

Doing slow may require one to slow down.

In Texas, it's clearly defined.

SB 193 requires drivers nearing stopped emergency vehicles-with lights activated -to either slow down or change lanes.

The law states a driver must either vacate the lane closest to the stopped emergency vehicle if the road has multiple lanes traveling in the same direction or slow down 20 miles per hour below the speed limit. (If the speed limit is below 25 mph the driver must slow down to 5 mph.)

Emergency vehicles include police, emergency medical service and fire vehicles.

A violation is punishable by a maximum fine of $200. If the violation results in property damage, the maximum fine increases to $500. If the violation results in bodily injury, the offense is enhanced to a Class B misdemeanor.

If they are on the shoulder, I slow down or change lanes. If they are in the grass or a side road, I do not slow down. But I do this for all vehicles.
