Overland Park resident fights speeding ticket in Eudora

By Richard Gwin · March 3, 2011 · Comment on this

Overland Park resident Andrew Koepke talks about a speeding ticket he received from the City of Eudora. Koepke fought the ticket in court, arguing that a city police officer could not issue the ticket because the stretch of road where the incident happened is under county jurisdiction. Koepke won his case.

Boo just goes to show everyone has to be involved in each others lives! cops fishing out of their jurisdiction. good job Bob! I would have challenged the citation also. "and i am a Lawrence resident who loves speeding, not of JOCO Origins"

a johnson county driver speeding? What? I can't imagine. Then fighting it? Really? What is the world coming to? That is why the court system in johnson county is overloaded. Folks with attitudes like him really thinking they can do no wrong. What a crock.

I guess big city boy showed em "hicks" in cornfield county!! He did have a arraogance about him didn't he. So, now that he has admitted on video to speeding in that area, is there any recourse by the Douglas County Sherrif to charge him with speeding there??

You are correct, the school is not open, however it is still a bus stop and children cross Church Street at 12th to get to the bus stop the lights are still active to keep our children safe.

Normally I'm for Law Enforcement, but Eudora does have a couple of jerks prancing around hiding behind badges. You know the type, they were bullied as kids or were too obnoxious to have friends, so now in adulthood you 'will respect' them. If the Officer is one of these and was over zealous to find a victim to 'respect' him he should learn to abide by the rules like we have to.

If you speed and get a ticket, you should pay your ticket and slow down. It's attitudes like this person's that teach us not to accept responsibility for our actions. I sure hope this gentleman is not a teacher. He said during the video that the money from his ticket and others issued at that location should have gone to the county. If he did in fact pay the ticket to the county, then I would respect his position.
