MAIZE, Kan. (KSNW) – A warning for drivers with a lead foot. The Kansas Highway Patrol is cracking down on speeding Wednesday.

Troopers will be out from 6 to 10 a.m., patrolling K-96 from Haven to Maize.

The patrol said it is an effort to reduce the number of driving fatalities in Kansas, which is currently more than 300.

Officials hope spreading the word before the enforcement will help those numbers.

“If we can get voluntary compliance and not have to write citations tomorrow, that would also be a good outcome for us,” said Trooper Chad Crittenden, Kansas Highway Patrol. “We want people to follow the laws, obey the speed limits, use their turn signals.”

Trooper Crittenden tells KSN News the speed enforcement will continue, with at least 100 planned for the rest of the year.
