Kansas City Star conducts a computer-assisted study of Missouri's motor vehicle records and finds that Kansas City's police officers, while off duty, rarely receive traffic violations in the city; the average city driver's chances of receiving a ticket are fifty times that of the average city police officer; members of the fire department receive twice as many traffic convictions as the average Missouri driver, with one-tenth of the force having their licences revoked in the past, Dec. 23, 1990.
