You will be ticketed

The state of Kansas, like so many others in the nation, is broke. Various things have been done to stir up as much revenue as possible. For example, April was the first month out of several that courthouse employees were not allowed to work one day so that the state did not have to pay them. Courthouses where employees are fired or who quit, will probably not be allowed to replace that employee for awhile.

Now, the government has decided to start giving tickets to ANYONE and EVERYONE who is caught driving just 4 or more miles per hour over the posted speed limit in towns and in the country.

You've been warned!

  1. I don't know about this 4 mph thing but I do have a correction. County Courthouse employees are not under a hiring freeze. It is the state judicial system that enacted the furloughs for the court employees, thus, the only employees in the courthouse affected are in the District Court. They are required to close the office on 4 Fridays and do not receive pay for this day. They have been under a hiring freeze for over 1 year; if someone quits a position, that desk stays empty and the other workers have to pick up the slack. This has been a real stress in the bigger courts.
