Another KC Merto City moving to the popular e-ticket format for speeding tickets

Overland Park, Olathe, Kansas City Kansas, Kansas City Missouri and now North Kansas City, all have something in common.  They are using the new e-ticket system for issuing and prosecuting traffic violations.  What this means for the city is a streamlined system and a more up to date record.  No more waiting on the police to turn in paper tickets before the court can do anything with the tickets.

Many of the suburb towns that make up the metro are moving or have moved to this new system and most attorneys like it, including this one.  Here is hoping that more will soon follow.  Here it the article in the KC Star.

NKC moving to electronic traffic ticket system

By: ROBERT A. CRONKLETON

The City Council last week unanimously approved a measure that would move the city to an electronic ticketing system. Currently, police carry ticket books and fill out the citations by hand. Another person enters those citations into the municipal court system.

Under the new e-ticket system, police will use an electronic device to capture information from driver’s licenses, print the citations and transmit them to the municipal court.  The devices also can read some license plates and vehicle identification numbers.  The main advantages of the new system are that it makes the process more efficient while at the same time saving the city money, said Stephen Roberts, information technology manager for North Kansas City.


Here is a short video describing the differences and how to identify where you got your ticket.
