Police to step up traffic enforcement

The Gardner Police Department will be participating in a special traffic enforcement program sponsored by the Kansas Department of Transportation.  The “Click It or Ticket” enforcement campaign will run from May 23 through June 5.

Gardner Police Department will have extra enforcement during this time period and will be concentrating primarily on Adult, Teen and Child Safety Restraints.  Gardner Police will have a zero tolerance for any safety restraint violations during this campaign.  A secondary focus will also be made on Driving under the Influence infractions.

    If this requires overtime that would be a waste of taxpayer dollars. If you want to really raise awareness about seat belt safety put up a series of signs around town.

    Sticking people with a seat belt fine when motorcyclists don’t even wear a helmet is the height of hypocrisy.
