Texas Pricate Street/Easement Penal Codes

Not sure if this is the correct place but if needed please move. But I was wanting to know if anyone knows where I can the rights and laws that exist in Texas for private streets/easements as we recently kicked off a car from our street and the officer said we cant do that. I one time found the penal codes and statutes but cannot do so now. TIA

It depends heavily on the jurisdiction (city), and whether or not a public entity maintains the road (county, city, state). Generally if anyone but a private land owner maintains the road, it is not private.

If it is simply a road easement for you to cross the property of someone else and access your own property - that is not a public roadway. That is private property and anyone but the grantee that accesses it is trespassing. I would suggest installing a gate with lock in that scenario.

All the Texas state statutes are available on line. A simple google search will turn up multiple links. Similarly, many larger cities and well populated counties have their local laws on line.

Contact me by PM. I'll see what I can do to assist.

Your "private street" may actually be a "public access easement" - in which case, the officer may likely be correct.
