Topeka is the capital city of Kansas in the United States. This little but sprawled city is situated at the junction of major highways including the Kansas Turnpike.


This excerpt is from the Standard Traffic Ordinances of Kansas Cities book which Topeka has adopted as of 2010: Sec. 69. Pedestrians Soliciting Rides or Business.

(a) No person shall stand upon or along a street or highway for the purpose of soliciting a ride.

I have hitchhiked through Topeka holding my thumb out to dozens of cops and they haven't seemed to mind much, just understand that it is technically illegal.
