Maximum Speed Limits; (STO #33 and KSA 8-1558 Find the exact wording

Posted maximum speed limits for the downtown Business District are different than other parts of the City of McPherson. The Business District speed zone begins on the north end in the 500blk. of N. Main St. and ends at Sutherland St. on the south end. The zone is 20 mph. Patrol Bureau has observed traffic speeds a few blocks into the District as much as 18 mph over the limit.

Speeding in the City of McPherson is a moving violation. The MINIMUM fine for speeding is $30 and Municipal Court costs are $78.00 for a $108 total. For your safety and others, too… OBEY THE SIGN, OR PAY THE FINE.
