Police: Grace period ending for NH hands-free driving violators


Police said the "grace period" for hands-free driving is coming to an end - a year after the law took effect.

There will be fewer verbal warnings, and more tickets will be issued, police told Seacoastonline. The law - established July 1, 2015 - allows police to issue $100 tickets to drivers seen using electronic devices without hands-free accessories.

Second offenders may pay $200. A third-time offense within a two-year period could lead to a $500 fine.

Drivers under the age of 18 may not use electronic devices with or without their hands, not even when stopped at traffic lights.
