Nahant, Massachusetts Speed Traps
Causeway to and from Nahant
Now that the mini big dig construction project is under way on the Causeway, the Nahant PD have posted 25mph speed limit signs to …let’s say fill the till. Plus this is a construction zone and if your speeding it’s $20 for each mph over…eg your caught going 35 and that’s going to cost you $200 + surcharge. Be on the lookout as they will follow you down the Causeway, they sit near the rotary and also near the Tides restaurant and bank parking lot. The citations have soared over the summer, something doesn’t sit quite right here. Be on guard and stay the 25, even though the boats in the channel are going faster.
