Watch your speed on Water St.


Motorists on East Water Street in Urbana are being watched closely for speeding infractions. A truck westbound on Monday is shown by this orange, flashing digital sign to be in compliance with the speed limit of 25 miles per hour. The portable radar sign, owned by the Urbana Police Division, is used throughout the city to track vehicle traffic and to remind motorists how fast they are driving. “We try to keep the sign out as much as possible in different neighborhoods throughout the city,” Chief Matt Lingrell said. “(Water Street) is an area we have received complaints about recently, so it’s that neighborhood’s turn to have the sign.” While this picture was being taken, a police officer had an eastbound motorist pulled over on the other side of the street. The long, straight, smooth stretch is an easy area to inadvertently speed, but it has a residential speed limit of 25 rather than a main thoroughfare speed limit of 35. Lingrell said any resident interested in having the portable radar sign placed in his or her neighborhood can request it by filling out a traffic complaint form on the city’s website at www.urbanaohio.com.
