NH Considering Hand-Held Cell Phone Ban For Drivers

BOSTON (CBS) – In an effort to combat the growing distracted driving problem, New Hampshire lawmakers are considering a bill that could ban drivers from using hand-held cell phones in their car.

The law would require drivers to use hands-free mobile devices.

Drivers who hold their phone in the air or near their ears could face a $100 fine.

Texting while driving was banned in New Hampshire since last year.
