A. Definition of "Urban District." As used in this chapter, the term "urban district" means the territory contiguous to and including any street in the Village which is built up with structures devoted to business, industry or dwelling houses situated at intervals of less than one hundred (100) feet for a distance of a quarter of a mile or more.
B. Driving at Greater Speed than Reasonable and Proper; Decreasing Speed Under Certain Circumstances. No person shall drive any vehicle upon any street in this Village at a speed which is more than is reasonable and proper with regard to traffic conditions and the use of the street, which endangers the safety of any person or property or is more than the applicable maximum speed limited established by this chapter. The fact that the speed of a vehicle does not exceed the applicable maximum speed limit does not relieve the driver from the duty to decrease speed when approaching and crossing an intersection, when approaching and going around a curve, when approaching a hillcrest, when traveling upon any narrow or winding roadway or when special hazards exist with respect to pedestrians or traffic or by reason of weather or highway conditions; and speed shall be decreased as may be necessary to avoid colliding with any person or vehicle on or entering a street in compliance with the legal requirements and the duty of all persons to use due care.
C. In and Outside Urban District Generally. The maximum speed limit for any vehicle operated on a street in the Village, unless some other such limit is established pursuant to the provisions of Section 10.20.020, or unless some other such limit is established by the state or the county pursuant to law, is as follows:
1. Outside of an urban district the maximum is fifty-five (55) miles an hour.
2. In an urban district the maximum is thirty (30) miles an hour, except that in an alley the maximum is fifteen (15) miles an hour.
