Six State Speed Enforcement This Weekend

KSAL StaffJuly 20, 2017

The Kansas Highway Patrol is among law enforcement agencies that are working together in a multi-state speed enforcement effort.

According to the agency, a six-state speed enforcement will occur this weekend, from July 21 through July 23. The Kansas Highway Patrol and local law enforcement agencies will join law enforcement from Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma to address speeding. As speed increases, the severity of a crash increases, which could lead to fatalities and serious injuries.

The agencies will patrol city, rural, state, and federal highways. Citations can be issued to those who are speeding, or those who have other traffic violations, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or not buckling up. During the enforcement, officers will be educating drivers and passengers on the importance of following traffic laws.

“Speeding continues to be a problem, and is a contributing factor in one of every four fatality crashes. Simply obeying the speed limit would result in saving dozens of lives in Kansas and thousands nationally every year,” said Colonel Mark Bruce, Superintendent of the Kansas Highway Patrol.
