NAHANT - Hitting the gas on the Nahant Causeway is getting some motorists citations in excess of $1,000. According to Police Lt. Thomas Hutton, one motorist was recently issued a citation for $1,220. “He was doing 90 miles an hour on the inbound lane of the Causeway at 6 a.m.,” Hutton said. “The speed limit is 25 miles per hour and it is being strictly enforced.” The speed limit was cut down to 25 mph, from 45 mph, during the recent work in the area. “We are on a campaign to get people to slow down,” he said. “We have issued countless verbal warnings. “ The crackdown on speeding motorists got underway this spring when the $20 million Nahant Causeway rehabilitation project, which is expected to take three years to complete, got underway.
You probably have to live in Swampscott or Nahant to appreciate this story. But honestly I laughed out loud when I saw the picture of the police chief. Like who does he think he is kidding with that pose? Relax tough guy. It’s fucking Nahant. Your patrolling the fucking Causeway. I’ll drive 100 down the middle of it right in your eye ball and then slow down at the end and there ain’t shit you can do about it. You know it. I know it. Everybody knows it. And how the fuck does Nahant afford 20 million dollar renovations to begin with when they can’t even raise 200 bucks to save the 4th of July fireworks.
