Types of Traffic Violations
Traffic laws vary by state but most have similar restrictions on certain types of driver behavior. In Kansas, traffic violations can range from moving violations that are considered infractions to more serious offenses that may be charged as misdemeanors.
Under Kansas law, you can be pulled over and cited for the following:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Driving without a license or with a suspended license
- Driving without insurance
- Driving without a registration or with an expired registration
- Running a red light or rolling through a stop sign
- Making an illegal U-turn
- Hit and run/leaving the scene of an accident
- Reckless driving
- Failure to wear a seat belt or use a child restraint system
- Other moving violations
What are the Consequences for Too Many Traffic Violations in Kansas?
Unlike other states, Kansas does not operate on a points system where points are added to your driving record when you violate traffic laws. Instead,if you accumulate too many moving violations within the requisite time period, your driving privileges could be suspended.
You may also face a license suspension if:
- you refuse to submit to chemical testing when stopped for a suspected DUI,
- fail to report for a traffic court date,
- fail to provide continuous liability insurance,
- or drive with an open container of alcohol.
What Speed is Considered Reckless Driving in Kansas?
Driving more than 20 or 25 miles per hour over the speed limit could result in a reckless driving charge.
