Kalona has been having problems with cars making U-Turns within the city, so many problems that they are posting No U-Turn signs in the most problematic areas. U-Turns are illegal anywhere in Iowa but Mayor Jerry Kaufman says people still make them anyway, most of the time its because they want to get a parking space close to a building. He thinks they shouldn’t even have to post signs, people should just know not to do it. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous call complaining about the U-Turns, and have even been able to issue some tickets. Kaufman says he doesn’t know exactly when the signs will be posted, but says the signs have been ordered, and will be posted as soon as they get them.
