More news:

75 mph speed limit signs are in place on 807 miles of Kansas highways. See the map of 75 mph routes in Kansas.

Hard to argue with this: 2001 - 2010 was the greatest decade ever for Kansas transportation. See KDOT's decade report.

Keep Right, Pass Left. A Kansas law requires that drivers on roadways outside of cities, with two or more lanes in the same direction, must drive in the right lane unless they are making a left turn or passing another vehicle (fine is $60 + court costs).

Put the phone down and drive! Kansas joins 29 other states: drivers caught writing, sending or reading a text message while on a public road or highway = $60 fine + court costs.

Going fishing? Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks provides weekly fishing updates and KDOT has a couple of public access lakes at Hydraulic and 45th St. North. Here are maps to many of Sedgwick County's fishing locations.
