Authorities Beef Up Traffic Enforcement Along K-18

If you travel on K-18 between Fort Riley and Manhattan you might want to slow it down.

The Manhattan Mercury reports Thursday that Riley County police and the Kansas Highway Patrol are beefing up traffic enforcement. Both held an improptu safety class where they issued warning tickets and citations for various traffic violations.

The newspaper reports that five drivers were arrested, four for illegal drug possession and one for an outstanding warrant.

Riley County police say the crack down comes after complaints about the highway being unsafe.
