The Senate takes up cell phone use


Hand-held cellphone use would be banned while driving in New Hampshire under a bill facing a Senate vote today. The Bill would continue to allow adults to talk on cellphones while driving if they use hands-free phones. However, it would ban all cell phone use by minors behind the wheel. The ban would apply while drivers are stopped temporarily, such as at a red light, but not if they have pulled over and stopped. The bill doesn’t apply in an emergency.
