TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansans will be allowed to continue driving on a limited basis while paying off traffic tickets under a new law taking effect in July.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius signed a bill Monday that allows the state to issue a restricted license for such things as driving to and from work, school, a doctor's appointment or medical emergency.

People receiving the licenses would have to pay off their fines within one year. If they don't, their licenses would be suspended.

Once the fines are paid, the license would be reinstated without restrictions.

The law would apply to people paying off fines for traffic violations such as speeding or to those disputing tickets.
