8-292. Court imposition of driving privilege restrictions; duration; procedure; violation; penalty. (a) Except as otherwise provided by law, whenever a statute authorizes the court to place restrictions on a person's driving privileges or whenever a municipal ordinance which prohibits the acts prohibited by such a statute so provides, a district or municipal court may enter an order restricting the person's driving privileges to driving only under the following circumstances: (1) In going to or returning from the person's place of employment or schooling; (2) in the course of the person's employment; (3) during a medical emergency; (4) in going to and returning from probation or parole meetings, drug or alcohol counseling or any place the person is required to go to attend an alcohol and drug safety action program as provided in K.S.A. 8-1008, and amendments thereto; (5) at such times of the day as may be specified by the order; and (6) to such places as may be specified by the order.
(b) Restrictions imposed pursuant to this section shall be for a period of not less than 90 days nor more than one year, as specified by the court order.
(c) Upon entering an order restricting a person's driving privileges under this section, the court shall require that the person surrender to the court any driver's license in the person's possession. The court shall transmit any such license to the division of vehicles of the department of revenue, together with a copy of the order. Upon its receipt, the division of vehicles shall issue without charge a driver's license which shall indicate on the face of the license that restrictions have been imposed on the person's driving privileges and that a certified copy of the order imposing the restrictions is required to be carried by the person for whom the license was issued any time the person is operating a motor vehicle on the highways of this state. If the person is a nonresident, the court shall transmit a copy of the order to the division. The division shall forward a copy of the order to the motor vehicle administrator of the person's state of residence. The judge shall furnish to any person whose driver's license is surrendered under this section a copy of the order, which for a period of 30 days only shall be recognized as a valid Kansas driver's license pending issuance of the restricted license as provided in this section.
(d) Upon expiration of the period of time for which restrictions are imposed pursuant to this section, the licensee may apply to the division for the return of any license previously surrendered by the licensee. If the license has expired, the person may apply to the division for a new license, which shall be issued by the division upon payment of the proper fee and satisfaction of the other conditions established by law, unless the person's driving privileges have been suspended or revoked prior to expiration.
(e) Violation of restrictions imposed under this section is a misdemeanor subject to punishment and suspension of driving privileges as provided by K.S.A. 8-291, and amendments thereto.
