HANDS FREE 603

NH is Hands Free

What does this mean?

  • No use of hand held electronic devices capable of providing voice or data
    communication while driving or temporarily halted in traffic for a stop sign or
    traffic signal or other momentary delays
  • This includes cell phones, GPS, tablets, iPods, iPads or other devices that require
    data entry
  • Emergency calls to 911 or other public safety agencies will be allowed
  • Bluetooth or other hands-free electronic devices will be allowed
  • One hand non-cellular 2-way radio use will be allowed
  • Teen drivers under the age of 18 will not be allowed to use any electronic devices
    (
    hand held or not) except to report an emergency. Anyone violating this will be
    subject to penalties and license suspension or revocation.

Why is the NH Law Important?

  • During the past several years, over 116 fatal crashes in New Hampshire were caused by
    distraction
  • The increasing use of electronic devices is fast becoming the primary distraction
  • While texting, a driver is 23 times more likely to crash
  • Sending or receiving a text distracts the driver for almost 5 seconds
  • At 50 miles per hour, we travel longer than the length of a football field during
    that 5 seconds
  • Even dialing a phone number increases the risk of crashing by 3 times.

Penalties for Violations

1st Offense…………………………… $100 fine
2nd Offense…………………………. $250 fine
3rd Offense within 2 years………. $500 fine
Penalty assessments will be added to the fines
