The Lawrence Police Department joins other police agencies across the state today in the weeklong Kansas Thanksgiving Traffic Enforcement Campaign.

The campaign — which runs through Sunday — will target impaired drivers, as well as those not wearing seat belts, according to a news release issued by Lawrence police.

The campaign is being funded by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.

"The Lawrence Police Department reminds motorists to buckle up, designate a driver and do your part to help make the streets of Lawrence safer during the holiday season," said Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley in the release.

First, isn't this part of the police's daily jobs...ticketing people who are breaking the laws and second, there are only so many cops to go around, if Lawrence gets extras, other towns get less ( could you please print a list of towns that will have less cops...need to start my devil-mis shopping, only 36 more shopping days until my enemy is born)?

Thanks to the brave heros in the police department for keeping us safe from those lawless people who don't wear seatbelts.
