NH Hands Free Law – July 1st, 2015
A new law is taking effect come July 1, 2015 in New Hampshire. Beginning on that date you must use a Bluetooth device when on your cell phone, or risk getting a ticket. It is punishable by a $100 fine for the first offense, $250 for a second offense, and $500 for any additional offenses after that within a 24-month period. The ban will apply when drivers are stopped temporarily but not if they have pulled off the road. The new law will allow for hands-free cell phone operation, but prohibits drivers from texting, emailing, and programming GPS systems while the car is in motion. Another important aspect of the law is that anyone under the age of 18 may not sure any cellular device, whether connected to Bluetooth or not, while they are driving, unless it is an emergency situation. Non compliance of this can result in a suspended license.
