  If you're driving through Mission, Kan., make sure that your seatbelt is fastened, you're not talking on your cell phone and you come to a complete stop. This suburb hands out more traffic tickets than they have residents. You've been warned. 

On Tuesday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with Mayor Laura McConwell about why the traffic ticket count is so high and why traffic enforcement is such a priority in the town. 

Mayor Laura McConwell has served as the city of Mission’s mayor since March 2002. Prior to serving as mayor, she was a City Councilwoman, a member of Mission’s Park Board and an active community volunteer. She has a Bachelor of Arts from Brown University and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Mayor McConwell is an attorney with the McConwell Law Offices in Mission.
