House Republican Alliance statement on HB1360
The House Republican Alliance released a statement today on the passage of HB1360-A, a bill that would ban use of hand held devices while driving and prohibit any use of cell phones while driving for citizens under the age of 18.

"This bill is a strong overreach of government into our private lives. Distracted driving, including texting while driving, has been in the law for years. Forbidding drivers to call home - or set their GPS - while stopped in traffic is a ridiculous intrusion into our private lives," stated Rep. Mark Warden- Goffstown.
