8-1,118. Same; insufficient or no fund check; penalty; collection of debt; suspension and reinstatement of registration. Whenever any person, or owner, as payment for any fees or penalty provided by this act presents a check on a bank in which such person has no money on deposit, or in which there is insufficient money on deposit for the payment of such check upon presentation, the division of vehicles shall immediately provide notice to the owner of a fleet registered hereunder that such owner's right to operate the vehicles of such fleet upon the highways of Kansas has been suspended. Upon the owner's receiving notice aforesaid, such owner shall return the identification devices issued for the vehicles of such owner's fleet or remit full payment to cover the amount of the insufficient or no fund check together with a penalty of ten dollars ($10) to the division of vehicles. If the insufficient or no fund check is not replaced by appropriate payment and penalty within ten (10) days of the date of notice, the division of vehicles may collect the debt by filing a notice of lien in the same manner and to the extent as provided in K.S.A. 8-1,115. The amount of the insufficient or no fund check together with penalty shall constitute a debt due the state, which may be collected by suit or otherwise. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed so as to exclude criminal prosecutions as in other cases involving insufficient or no fund checks.
Upon payment of the insufficient or no fund check and penalty by the fleet owner, the division of vehicles shall give notice to the fleet owner of reinstatement of such owner's right to operate the vehicles of a fleet registered hereunder, and return any identification devices to said owner which may have been received by the division of vehicles.
