8-145a. Collection of insufficient or no-fund payment instrument or rejected or reversed credit card payment given for vehicle registration; notice; recovery of plates; return of check, when; criminal prosecution. (a) The county treasurer of any county who shall receive from any person, as payment of the annual license fee for the registration of any motorcycle or motor vehicle, a credit card payment that is subsequently rejected or reversed by the credit card issuer or a payment instrument drawn on or issued by a bank or other financial institution in which such person has no money on deposit or in which there is insufficient money on deposit for the payment of such payment instrument upon its presentation, shall upon the return of any such payment instrument by the bank or other financial institution or upon the rejection or reversal of the credit card transaction notify the person uttering the same. Such notice shall be given by first class mail and shall state that if within seven days of the date of mailing the notice, such person has not paid the amount of the license fee, the sheriff will recover the registration number plate for which the credit card transaction or payment instrument was submitted and return the same to the office of the county treasurer. If the amount of the license fee is received in the office of the county treasurer within such seven days, the county treasurer shall return such insufficient or no-fund payment instrument to the person from whom it was received. Nothing in this act is to be construed to exclude criminal prosecutions as in other cases involving insufficient or no-fund checks or other payment instruments.
(b) For the purposes of this section, "payment instrument" shall have the meaning ascribed to it in K.S.A. 9-508 and amendments thereto.
