New “Safety Corridors” Proposed for Kansas


Feel like speeding fines are too high already? This news won’t make you much happier.

On the verge of advancing to the governor’s desk is a Kansas bill that is intended to improve safety on two well-traveled roadways.

The Kansas Senate voted 26-14 to sign off on a House-Senate conference committee report that would set up two safety corridors on heavily-used roadways near Kansas City and Wichita.

The bill “ HB2432 “ now awaits a House floor vote before it can advance to Gov. Sam Brownback’s desk. If it becomes law, safety corridors would be set up on Kansas Highway 10 between Lawrence and Lenexa, and U.S. Highway 54 in Wichita.
