Speeders: Beware in Holyrood

POSTED: December 30, 2013 7:00 a.m.

 The Holyrood City Council approved a motion at Monday’s meeting to have Mary Marshall of Salina, assist city clerk Neysa Brown with the electronic filing of traffic tickets due to a big backlog since the arrival of Holyrood city police chief Patrick Chapman.
Chapman has been writing tickets to speedsters who ignore the 45 mph posted speed limit on K-156 through Holyrood, and the word is out.
“I’ve noticed that the trucks have started to slow down,” Patrick said. “I think the word of mouth is out there. I’m sure that by slowing down traffic in our town, we make the truckers think about all the little towns along the way. If we aren’t saving lives here, then we are saving them down the road.”
The council was pleased with Chapman’s work, and had noticed that the traffic through Holyrood was conforming to the speed limit.
Marshall, who works for the Salina Municipal Court as a clerk, is approved by the state to enter the ticket information and will be able to do the Holyrood work from her home.
