Are police cars allowed to park on private property and use their rader guns. I saw a police car parked in the driveway entrance to Brinkman Ranch (an unlit portion of 720 between Preston and Hillcrest) running rader. Is this allowed?

Unless the owner objects its not a problem. The area you are referring to is most likely an easement. Citizens often invite us onto their property to help enforce traffic laws on public streets.

In some states, an officer must have, at minimum, the parking lights on when performing this type of traffic monitoring. Is that the case in TX?

There are no requirements under state law.
