  • Transportation code help..

    Hey guys/gals,

    I'm studying for a test and i'm a bit confused. I feel like trying to read the transportation code is like reading the king james bible. Whats the difference between a stop lamp and a tail lamp? Is the stop lamp what comes on when you hit the brakes, and the tail lamp what is on when your lights are on and your foot is not on the brake? I've been studying for a couple of hours and want to make sure what i've thinking is rights.... thanks in advance, and sorry for such a bonehead question.

      You nailed it. Don't know if it will help, but a whole lot of the Vehicle Code's wording is carried over from the 1930's and 40's. So, you'll run into quite a bit of that. I often had to read a given statute twice, or even three times to understand it properly. Welcome to the club.

        Yes, stop lamps are your brake lights and tail lamps are illuminated when you have the headlights on during nighttime driving. Both are on the rear of the vehicle and remember the only white light allowed on the rear of your vehicle is the license plate light bulb.

          Now that one is new to me. I've seen a lot of those white lights.
          -I don't feel you honor someone by creating a physical gesture (the salute). You honor them by holding them in memory and, in law enforcement, proceeding in vigilant, ethical police work. You honor this country or deceased soldiers or whatever you're honoring when you salute a flag by thinking, feeling, and continuing a life of freedom.

              In Texas:


              § 547.322. TAILLAMPS REQUIRED. (a) Except as provided by
              Subsection (b), a motor vehicle, trailer, semitrailer, pole
              trailer, or vehicle that is towed at the end of a combination of
              vehicles shall be equipped with at least two taillamps.
              (b) A passenger car or truck that was manufactured or
              assembled before the model year 1960 shall be equipped with at least
              one taillamp.
              (c) Taillamps shall be mounted on the rear of the vehicle:
              (1) at a height from 15 to 72 inches; and
              (2) at the same level and spaced as widely apart as
              practicable if a vehicle is equipped with more than one lamp.
              (d) A taillamp shall emit a red light plainly visible at a
              distance of 1,000 feet from the rear of the vehicle.
              (e) If vehicles are traveling in combination, only the
              taillamps on the rearmost vehicle are required to emit a light for
              the distance specified in Subsection (d).
              (f) A taillamp or a separate lamp shall be constructed and
              mounted to emit a white light that:
              (1) illuminates the rear license plate; and
              (2) makes the plate clearly legible at a distance of 50
              feet from the rear.
              (g) A taillamp, including a separate lamp used to illuminate
              a rear license plate, must emit a light when a headlamp or auxiliary
              driving lamp is lighted.
