Multi-State Speed Enforcement Effort Underway

KSAL StaffSeptember 23, 2016

Law officers in six states including Kansas are joining in a regional speed enforcement campaign intended to catch speeding drivers this weekend. The Regional Speed Enforcement Campaign is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska.

Officers are concentrating on high traffic roads in an effort to reduce speeding-related auto crashes.

Authorities say 27 percent of crash fatalities nationwide in 2015 were related to speeding, or driving too fast for conditions. 86 percent of all speeding-related traffic fatalities were on roads where the posted speed limits were 55 miles per hour or lower.

The Saline County Sheriff’s Office and the Kansas Highway Patrol are among agencies that are participating.
