NH House voting on hand-held cellphone ban bill
Question of the Day
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Hand-held use of cellphones while driving would be prohibited in New Hampshire under a bill being taken up by the House.
The House is scheduled to vote this week on a bill that also would ban all cellphone use by minors behind the wheel. The bill doesn’t apply in an emergency.
The ban would apply while drivers are stopped temporarily, such as at a red light, but not if they pulled over and stopped off the road.
The bill allows use of hands-free electronic devices, devices that are integrated into the motor vehicle and non-cellular 2-way radio devices.
State law currently bans only typing and sending text messages while driving, but does not prohibit reading text messages, surfing the Internet, dialing cellphones or programming GPS devices while driving.
