(b) An operator may drive on an improved shoulder to the left of the main traveled portion of a divided or limited-access or controlled-access highway if that operation may be done safely, but only: (1) to slow or stop when the vehicle is disabled and traffic or other circumstances prohibit the safe movement of the vehicle to the shoulder to the right of the main traveled portion of the roadway; (2) as permitted or required by an official traffic-control device; or (3) to avoid a collision. (c) A limitation in this section on driving on an improved shoulder does not apply to: (1) an authorized emergency vehicle responding to a call; (2) a police patrol; or

[maximum fine is $2,000, or 180 days in jail, or both] [Note: In 10/97, Dobie Mall tried to tell customers that they couldn't lock their bikes to street signs because they would be violating Sec which requires sidewalks not be obstructed. However, merely locking the
6 bikes to street signs doesn't obstruct the sidewalk, and it's doubtful that a cyclist would actually be convicted for this, if the ticket were defended competently.] Bikes can park on the sidewalk, cars can't Sec Stopping, Standing, or Parking Prohibited in Certain Places. (a) An operator may not stop, stand, or park a vehicle: (1) on the roadway side of a vehicle stopped or parked at the edge or curb of a street; (2) on a sidewalk; [this is intended to apply to cars] (3) in an intersection; (4) on a crosswalk; (5) between a safety zone and the adjacent curb or within 30 feet of a place on the curb immediately opposite the ends of a safety zone, unless the governing body of a municipality designates a different length by signs or markings; (6) alongside or opposite a street excavation or obstruction if stopping, standing, or parking the vehicle would obstruct traffic; (7) on a bridge or other elevated structure on a highway or in a highway tunnel; (8) on a railroad track; or (9) where an official sign prohibits stopping.

(d) A person may stop, stand, or park a bicycle on a sidewalk if the bicycle does not impede the normal and reasonable movement of pedestrian or other traffic on the sidewalk. (Also see 42.03, Blocking Traffic, above. And here's the Austin version of the sidewalk parking law.)
7 TX Penal Code: Sec Failure to Identify. No Requirement to Carry ID (a) A person commits an offense if he intentionally refuses to give his name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has lawfully arrested the person and requested the information. (b) A person commits an offense if he intentionally gives a false or fictitious name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has: (1) lawfully arrested the person; (2) lawfully detained the person; or (3) requested the information from a person that the peace officer has good cause to believe is a witness to a criminal offense. (c) Except as provided by Subsection (d), an offense under this section is a Class C misdemeanor. (d) If it is shown on the trial of an offense under this section that the defendant was a fugitive from justice at the time of the offense, the offense is a Class B misdemeanor.

Sept. 1, 1991; Acts 1993, 73rd Leg., ch. 900, Sec. 1.01, eff. Sept. 1, Ed. Note: Here's what this law means in plain English. (1) You don't have to carry a driver's license or other ID, if you're not driving. (2) If you've been arrested you have to give your name, address, and date of birth to a police officer who requests it. (They'll police ask you for lots more than this, but these three items are all you're legally required to give them.) (3) If you've just been detained, not arrested, you don't have to give thm squat. But refusing to identify might cause them to arrest you anyway and take you downtown so they can determine who you really are. If this happens, you still won't be charged with failing to carry ID, because there is no such crime. (4) It's a crime to give false information about your identity, whether you've been arrested or just detained.. Sec Competitive Racing. Official bike races (a) In this section, "bicycle" means a nonmotorized vehicle propelled by human power.

[Amended in 2001 to include bicyclists & pedestrians.] Read about this on the Texas Legislature website. Safe Routes to School Program Sec Road Use by Bicyclists. Provision for a State Bicycle Coordinator
