KS Senate Approves "Safety Corridor" Bill - Doubling Fines on Two Highways


K10Fines for speeding could double on two busy Kansas highways.  The state Senate passed a bill that would double the price of speeding tickets on Kansas Highway 10 between Lawrence and Johnson County -- and on U.S. Highway 54 in Wichita.  Senator Bob Marshall, a Fort Scott Republican, voted in favor of the so-called "Safety Corridor" bill.


But Senator John Vratil, a Leawood Republican, says there's no need for this legislation.   


The measure now goes to the Kansas House for consideration.  If the proposal becomes law, new highway signs would be installed -- alerting drivers that they were on safety corridors and telling them about the increased fines.
