Overland Park has dismissed 200 traffic tickets and refunded $4,000 in fines over an unusual traffic ticket scandal. As a result, three police officers resigned last week, according to Chief Frank Donchez.
What the officers did is a little hard to understand.
“They were writing seatbelt tickets instead of other tickets,” says Donchez.
So even if a driver was speeding or ran a red light, these three officers would just write a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt.
