I'm starting to do more bank fishing lately. Often people recommend fishing by bridges. Parking near a bridge can be tricky.
I think it's legal to park on an improved shoulder, generally. Tex. Transp. Code 545.058(a)(1)
. But it is illegal to park on a bridge or elevated highway or when a "no parking" sign prohibits parking. Tex. Transp. Code 545.302(a)(7), (c)(2)
My question is this: when there is a "no parking" sign near the end of a bridge or elevated highway, how far does that "no parking" area extend? Just to the end of the bridge?
For example, in the picture below, do you think it is OK to park on the shoulder immediately after the guardrail ends?
