VIDEO: New Hampshire Hands-Free Law Takes Effect July 1

A new traffic law in New Hampshire prohibiting motorists from holding a cell phone or other electronic device while driving takes effect on Wednesday, July 1.

Police plan to start enforcing the law immediately. A first offense carries a $100 fine. A second offense sees the fine rise to $250. A third offense within a two-year period carries a $500 penalty.

Bluetooth or other hands-free systems are permitted.

New Hampshire State Police last Thursday, June 25, held a press conference to remind the driving public about the new regulatory change. Among the speakers was Marilyn Bachman, whose husband was killed in 2013 by a distracted driver. To view video footage of the news conference, click on the photo or link above.

    Great waist of time. This law is great on paper. I have not heard or seen any changes that make this law effective. I have a motor home which allows me the same sight level as class 8 trucks. If my self and my partner could take photos and send them them to the local authority. It's about 70% of the people on the road using the phone and are texting. I could split the finds 50/50, it would be like fishing in a barrel with a net. By the way it's the same in every state.
