State Toll Exemption Policy
Express, toll, and HOV Lanes
In the interest of public safety, law enforcement, and emergency vehicles are toll-exempt on all state toll roads. The revised policy allows first responders expedited travel in times of disasters and emergencies.

To facilitate mass evacuations, the policy also includes toll exemptions for the general public in the event of a declared emergency or natural disaster.
What constitutes an emergency vehicle can be found in Transportation Code, §541.201.
