Hudson chairman at odds with House Speaker over cell phone use while driving
HUDSON - N.H. House Speaker Shawn Jasper is looking to repeal the proposed ban on all forms of handheld cell phone use while driving, calling it "ridiculous" in a report by John Collins of the Lowell Sun.
The way Hudson Selectman Chairman Roger Couto sees it doesn't quite line up with the way Jasper does.
In the same article, Couto stated "I'm amazed. I never knew how many people there are driving with their phone in one hand, not paying attention, and going in the wrong lane. I see it every day. To think the wisdom of the House was to address this serious problem that's costing hundreds of lives across this country, and now to suggest this should be repealed? That is insane."
The ban was proposed and approved in March of 2014 and, as of right now, the ban will become active in July 2015.
