Need a dollar? State Farm Insurance, Safe Kids Kansas and the Kansas Department of Transportation are rewarding safe drivers and buckled-up passengers by passing out $1 bills. Just where or when is part of the mystery.
Between today and Sept. 1, representatives from the three groups will patrol the streets of Lawrence, looking for drivers and passengers wearing seat belts. Those who are wearing seat belts will receive a $1 bill; those who are not will be handed educational pamphlets.
"Quite frankly, we're giving money away," said Eric Smith, a State Farm agent. About eight representatives of the three groups will patrol the streets looking for safe drivers.
