  • TX day/night speed limits

    Here in texas we have speed limit signs that say 70 and 65 at night. My question is, when does "night" legally take effect? Is it a set time, during dusk, etc.

    Texas Transportation Code Section 541.401(5)....

    "Nighttime" means the period beginning one-half hour after sunset and ending one-half hour before sunrise."
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

    [George Washington (1732 - 1799)]

      To clarify what the Sarge has stated, sunrise and sunset are the times defined by the National Weather Service. They change each day and can be found by going to http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/RS_OneDay.php

      Some statewide examples (all times local):

      San Antonio - 6:54 AM / 5:41 PM
      El Paso - 6:30 AM / 5:09 PM
      Dallas - 6:53 AM / 5:29 PM
      Fort Worth - 6:55 AM / 5:31 PM
      Texarkana - 6:43 AM / 5:17 PM
      Houston - 6:42 AM / 5:28 PM
      Brownsville - 6:45 AM / 5:43 PM
      Amarillo - 7:18 AM / 5:45 PM

      Let your watchword be duty, and know no other talisman of success than labor. Let honor be your guiding star in your dealing with your superiors, with your fellows, with all. Be as true to a trust reposed as the needle to the pole. Stand by the right even to the sacrifice of life itself, and learn that death is preferable to dishonor. ~ Gov. Richard Coke, October 4, 1876

        this also goes for when you should have your lights on...half an hour before sunset and half an hour after sunrise.
