City proposing $30 increase in speeding fine

I tend to agree. I got a ticket for defective equipment and I got to fix it and then not have to pay for it. Looking at the list of other towns we would be way ahead of a fellow college town, Manhattan, keep it lower. If they are worried about being in line with other jurisdictions raise parking tickets to $6.

Police planning DUI checkpoint in Lawrence Friday night

You would have to make the Caroll v US no longer valid as well.

Police planning DUI checkpoint in Lawrence Friday night

I understand the SCOTUS make rulings on all sort of legal challenges. The arugments I have read so far seem to be predicatde on driving being a right. Which it is not and if it is please inform me how you see it as a right? Just so I am educated on your side? When you get your driver's license you sign saying your driver's license is not a right. If it was a right of every citizen, then we could have 5 or 6 year olds driving, since it is their right as well. We could drive any car, since it is your right to drive any wreck you want on the road with no regard for other people. You would have to make cars legally homes and not a means for conveyance.

Then find the check point. Park your car. Get drunk. Drive into the check point. Get arrested. Go thru District Court, Kansas Appeals Court and ask the Supreme Court to take your case. Then you can come back and blog about your victory and I will say congrats. Till then they are legal unless 5 of you bloggers are members of SCOTUS and you want this argued in front of you, again. The argument now is worthless. You are wrong. If you think this rule will change you can repeat the first several steps every year to test your hypothesis.

My one question is if these are unconstitutional why are they still being used? I am sure the Supreme Court said they were constitutional.

Armored vehicle, recently bought by Lawrence police with federal grant, appearing on city streets

Lastly, I see 2 whole comments about a $250,000 dollar grant to get a visiting author to the homeless shelter north, err Library. Where is the indignation there?? Why do we need authors to speak in Lawrence at that cost?? what a waste? Is the 50 Shades of Gray author coming? J.K. Rowling??

Neither does that logic, we could save lives if everyone was a mindless drone as well. D what is the cost of a average fatality accident, what is the cost for a police officer killed in the line of duty?

Perhaps it wins this grant from being on I-70 with a population over 80,000. Perhaps it wins this grant with the large infusion of students every year. What is a smarter purpose then saving a public servants and citizens life???
