I can't speak for Texas, but in my county, the city limits are drawn really funky, alledgely in order to ensure that one house was in the city limits for high school football purposes, so there are dirt roads and rural areas within inside the city limits, and also county maintained roads within the city limits, that are, rough, to say the least.
