Employee cited after vehicle crashes into 31st Street restaurant

I think you are correct. I did not think to look and see what the other two sections were 8-1567 and 8-1568. Actually now that I look at it, the answer was right there in front of me since it does list 8-1566. : )

So now we/I know that you can get a ticket for reckless driving, DUI and fleeing and eluding if we are being crazy in the parking lot at Wal-Mart.

Employee cited after vehicle crashes into 31st Street restaurant

Which is why I posted the above blurb, Sec. 2. Provisions of Ordinance Refer to Vehicles Upon the Streets and Highways. The City of Lawrence's Ordinance are based on the Standard Traffic Ordinance for Kansas Cities, Edition of 2011, where it states that provisions apply exclusively to the operation of vehicles upon streets and highways within this city except: (a) Where a different place is specifically referred to in a given section. The City of Lawrence, that I can see has not modified that Standard Traffic Ordinance.

Vertigo cited Statute 8-1566: Reckless driving, penalties. (a) Any person who drives any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving. However:

8-1501: Application of sections in article 15. The provisions of this article relating to the operation of vehicles refer exclusively to the operation of vehicles upon highways except:
(a) Where a different place is specifically referred to in a given section; and

(b) The provisions of K.S.A. 8-1566 to 8-1568, inclusive, and the provisions of article 10 of chapter 8 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and any acts amendatory thereof, shall apply upon highways and elsewhere throughout the state.

History: L. 1974, ch. 33, § 8-1501; July 1.

Section 8-1501 covers 8-1566 which means that, again, the incident happened on private property, not a city street. I do agree that DUI is different and it states so in the ordinances covering it. Same applies to handicapped parking. Here is an example of the handicapped parking clause, "(c) The provisions of subsection (a) shall be enforced by law enforcement officers on public and private property."

Since when can you be ticketed for driving on private property?

Sec. 2. Provisions of Ordinance Refer to Vehicles Upon the Streets and Highways; Exceptions. The provisions of this ordinance relating to the operation of vehicles refer exclusively to the operation of vehicles upon streets and highways within this city except:

(a) Where a different place is specifically referred to in a given section.

(b) The provisions of Sections 29 to 31, inclusive, of this ordinance, and the provisions of Article 10 of Chapter 8 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and any acts amendatory thereof, shall apply upon streets and highways and elsewhere throughout the city. (K.S.A. 8-1501)

Haskell provides no new details on violations

Does that mean intelligent racist comments are okay?

Former Haskell student trying to change rule permitting only federally recognized tribes for admission to university

How do you know what the author was implying? You don't. Does Cedric Sunray have a desire to return to Haskell? We don't know and can't say one way or the other just based on this article. And how do you know that the levels of education he has received are enough that he would no longer benefit? You don't. You also might want to read, and think before you comment...

Haskell vision

Why wouldn't the writer infer doubt? Have you seen anything from Haskell the past two years to inspire confidence?

During the past two years while Redman was acting, I, or the people I have talked to, have seen nothing to indicate that he has any ability or desire to do anything slightly more risky than to secure a safe landing for himself.
