TRANSPORTATION-RELATED STATUTES

1.  HEADLIGHT LAW (ALL VEHICLES)

K.S.A. 8-1703 was amended during 2006 to read that all vehicles on Kansas highways will drive with headlights on when:

a.)  windshield wipers are in continuous use as a result of rain, sleet or snow, or
b.)  due to insufficient light or unfavorable atmospheric conditions, including smoke or fog.
It also state law enforcement shall issue a warning citation to anyone violating this subsection.

2.  NO TEXTING WHILE DRIVING - K.S.A. 8-15,111 prohibits a person who is operating a motor vehicle on a public road or highway from "texting," using a wireless communications device to write, send, or read a written communication. This bill defines "wireless communications device" to include any type of device that sends or received messages, but to exclude voice-operated devices.  (passed by 2010)
