Every day I see construction equipment, like a backhoe, driving down the city streets of Lawrence. These vehicles don't have brake lights, turn signals or license plates. Are they supposed to be driving down the city of Lawrence streets, and what is the policy of the police department in ticketing or not ticketing these vehicles when the police department encounters them on the street?

The state's standard traffic ordinance defines "special mobile equipment," but does not prohibit operation of the vehicles while moving from site to site, City Manager Mike Wildgen said.
