New Hampshire and Massachusetts State Police Teaming Up in Cross-Border Effort to Crack Down on Distracted Driving

A cross-border effort by both the New Hampshire and Massachusetts State Police aims to crack down on distracted driving. Both agencies are trying to make commuters more aware of the dangers of distracted driving, which include using a cell phone while operating a vehicle. And while New Hampshire has a hands free law, Massachusetts is not completely hands free. Although they do have laws against texting.

WMUR reported that both agencies began their first cross-border effort this past Thursday. Authorities in the Granite State say roughly one-third of all crashes in New Hampshire in 2018 were caused by distracted driving.
