The city of Durand is experiencing a significant rise in speeding and illegal u-turns in the downtown business district. It is important to remember that the speed limit anywhere in the city of Durand, including the downtown area, is 25 mph. Additionally, when traveling either north or south in the downtown area, vehicles are prohibited from crossing the double yellow line in order to park on the opposite side of the road in which you are traveling. Both speeding and changing lanes in a business district (illegal u-turn) are civil infractions and come with a minimum fee of $100 and two points on your driving record. I would like to encourage everyone to come to our downtown and enjoy everything it has to offer, just please watch your speed and park in a safe manner.
