On the road: Traffic patrols increased for Fourth of July holiday Law enforcement officers will be watching closely for motorists driving under the influence as well as those violating other traffic laws throughout the Independence Day holiday. The Kansas Highway Patrol and 51 city and county law enforcement agencies began a stepped-up, coordinated-mobilization enforcement effort Sunday, and it will continue through Saturday. The mobilization enforcement is sponsored by the Kansas Department of Transportation. It involves state troopers along with police and sheriff’s departments targeting drivers under the influence of alcohol and drugs through special patrol strategies. Neither the Lawrence Police nor Douglas County Sheriff’s departments plan any special patrols this week. They will, however, be especially watchful for violators, spokesmen for the departments said. __________________ Law enforcement: Argument precedes accident on Kansas River Bridge An argument between a man and a woman led to a car wreck early Sunday morning, Lawrence Police said. At 2:30 a.m., a 32-year-old man driving a Volkswagen Jetta was driving his car onto the Kansas River Bridge when he was struck from behind by another vehicle that was following him, police said. The second car was reportedly driven by a 25-year-old woman, police said. The 1987 Volkswagen Jetta the man was driving spun into a utility pole. The driver was taken by Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries and then released, police said. The man and woman had been arguing earlier at another location, officers said. The woman fled the area of the wreck and had not been arrested as of Monday. __________________ Fourth of July: City band to perform concert of patriotic songs The Lawrence City Band will get into the Independence Day spirit when the musicians present “All-American Fourth of July Concert” at 8 p.m. Wednesday in South Park, 12th and Massachusetts streets.
