On this page you will find the Texas Education Code’s chapters pertaining to driving and parking on higher education properties in the State.  Here are some of those statutes:


Sec. 51.205. PARKING; BLOCKING OR IMPEDING TRAFFIC. It is unlawful for any person to park a vehicle on any property under the control and jurisdiction of a state institution of higher education of this state except in the manner designated by the institution and in the spaces marked and designated by the governing board, or to block or impede traffic through any driveway of that property. All laws regulating traffic on highways and streets apply to the operation of vehicles within the property of the institution, except as may be modified in this subchapter.

Acts 1971, 62nd Leg., p. 3072, ch. 1024, art. 1, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1971.

Sec. 51.206. PARKING AND TRAFFIC TICKETS; SUMMONS; ARREST WARRANTS. In connection with traffic and parking violations, only the officers authorized to enforce the provisions of this subchapter have the authority to issue and use traffic tickets and summons of the type used by the Texas Highway Patrol, with any changes that are necessitated by reason of this subchapter. On the issuance of any parking or traffic ticket or summons, the same procedures shall be followed as prevail in connection with the use of parking and traffic violation tickets by the cities of this state and the Texas Highway Patrol. Nothing in this subchapter restricts the application and use of regular arrest warrants.
