When will enforcement of the new speed limit begin?

The Andover Police Department intends to engage in extensive public outreach to make sure that drivers are aware of the reduced speed limit prior to issuing tickets and strictly enforcing the measure. The public education process is expected to last through the spring of 2023, with enforcement beginning in the summer.

Officers may pull over motorists exceeding the 25 MPH speed limit in certain cases, but will issue informational materials about the new townwide policy during the initial phases of implementation. The Andover Police Department will have directed patrols in certain areas that are identified to experience a high volume of motorists exceeding the new speed limit or traveling at excessive speeds.
