This standard traffic ordinance is designed to provide a comprehensive traffic code for Kansas cities. It does not take effect in a city until the governing body has passed and published an ordinance incorporating it by reference under the authority of and by the procedure prescribed by K.S.A. 12-3009 through 12-3012 and K.S.A. 12-3301 and 12-3302.

The standard traffic ordinance, in large part, parallels the state traffic act. Additional provisions for local regulations, if any, may be included in the incorporating ordinance. Previous ordinances relating to traffic in conflict with provisions of this standard traffic ordinance and ordinances incorporating earlier editions of the standard traffic ordinance should be repealed by the incorporating ordinance.
