Police launch speeding crackdown on Kellogg

Frustrated by drivers blatantly ignoring the law, Wichita police have launched a month-long crackdown on speeding on Kellogg.

Deputy Chief Darren Moore said more and more drivers are turning the freeway into a speedway. One motorist was ticketed for driving 107 on East Kellogg on Monday, and another driver was nabbed doing 113 on West Kellogg.

Moore said the primary motivation for cracking down on Kellogg speeders is to reduce the number of crashes, injuries and deaths on the freeway. Seven people died on Kellogg in 2008, and two have been killed so far this year.
