(Repealed by Ord. 1328)

To expedite the handling of traffic offenses considered to be minor enough to be handled without a court appearance the legislature enacted K.S.A. 8-2118 which gives an accused person an opportunity to pay a fixed fine by mail.  These traffic offenses are classified as traffic infractions.  City traffic offenses, which prohibit the same traffic offenses as state traffic infractions must be classified as “ordinance traffic infractions.”  A list of ordinance traffic infractions showing the Standard Traffic Ordinance section and corresponding state statute appears in the Appendix of the Standard Traffic Ordinance.
