Who does the Texas Transportation Code pertain to?
Transportation: "The removal of goods or persons from one place to another, by a carrier." Railroad Co. v. Pratt, 22 Wall. 133, 22 L. Ed. 827; Interstate Commerce Com'n v. Brisom, 14 S. Ct. 1125, 154 U.S. 447, 38 L. Ed. 1047; Gloucester Ferry Co. v. Pennsylvania, 5 S. Ct. 826, 114 U.S. 196, 29 L. Ed. 158.
Carrier: "One employed or engaged in the business of carrying goods for others for hire." Roeske v. Lamb, 39 N.M. 111, 41 P. 2d. 522, 523.”
According to the Supreme Court, transportation is the movement of commerce while being paid to do so. So, if that be the case, then the Tx. Trans. Code ONLY applies to the commercial use, not private, of the highways, roads, and streets within the state.
