Spring Street has been a one-way street for more than 50 years, so switching to a two-way street, which became official Tuesday, may take some time for motorists to get used to.
We saw that first hand Tuesday as our camera recorded this driver traveling on the wrong side of Spring Street today.
The driver realized her mistake when she noticed oncoming traffic and switched to the proper lane.
There were also cars parked the wrong way.
Residents parking the way they did yesterday on a one-way street, but that changed Tuesday.
Lima City Engineer Kirk Niemeyer says they don't want any crashes. There are message boards at each end of the change at Central Avenue and Jameson.
And he says he's comfortable with parking on both sides of the street as well as a shared bike path on alternating sides.
Elm Street is next on the city's list to change to a two way street.
