Morrison's citywide speed limit of 25 miles per hour takes effect Dec. 1.

According to Morrison Police Chief Brian Melton, the speed limit affects all city streets except for Illinois 78 and U.S. 30, which will remain 30 miles per hour.

In 2013, Main Street from Madison Street to Orange Street will be limited to 20 miles per hour.

"In general and for at least the first 60 days, officers will be issuing warnings to motorists exceeding the speed limit unless circumstances dictate otherwise at the discretion of the officer," Chief Melton said. "This new speed limit was established with the support of the city council to improve public safety and that is our mission."
