Chadron Police Advise Against U-Turns In Prohibited Places

The Chadron Police Department has received several complaints about motorists completing U-turns in the middle of city blocks within Chadron. Most of the complaints are for violations in the downtown area. As such, CPD wants everyone in the city to know what the city ordinance allows and does not allow:

§ 16-417 TURN ONLY AT STREET INTERSECTIONS. No vehicle shall be turned so as to proceed in the opposite direction or cross from one side of the street to the other, except at a street intersection.

They ask all motorists to be conscious of this ordinance for the safety of pedestrians and other motorists alike. The Chadron Police Department will be enforcing this ordinance by issuing citations for violations.

The fine amount is $25.00 plus court costs.
