State police aim to crack down on distracted driving


OF DISTRACTED DRIVING. STATE POLICE SAY WE ARE ENTERING
WHAT IS TRADITIONALLY THE MOST
DANGEROUS TIME ON NEW HAMPSHIRE
ROADS BETWEEN THE COLUMBUS DAY
AND THANKSGIVING HOLIDAYS. TODAY SEVERAL AGENCIES AND A
LOCAL TRUCKING COMPANY ANNOUNCED
A PARTNERSHIP DESIGNED TO KEEP
DRIVERS SAFE AND UNDERSTAND THE
RISKS OF DISTRACTED DRIVIN
IF WE CAN ADOPT THE MIND SET WHERE WHEN YOU GET BEHIND THE
WHEEL OF A VEHICLE IT’S THE
EQUIVILENT OF FLYING AN
AIRCRAFT, YOU’RE RESPONSIBLE FOR
A VEHICLE THAT IS A PROJECTILE
THAT CAN BE A DEADLY WEAPON.>>STATE POLICE SAY LAST YEAR
THERE WERE 35,000 CRASHES ON NEW
HAMPSHIRE ROADS 30% WERE RELATED
TO DISTRACTED DRIVING. OF LAST YEAR’S 147 FATALITIES ON
NEW HAMPSHIRE ROADS 18% OF THO
WERE ATTRIBUTED TO HAND HELD
DEVICES. TROOPERS RECENTLY RODE WIT
TRUCKERS FOR ROSS EXPRESS TO
UNDERSTAND FIRST HAND WHAT
THEY’RE SEEING ON THE ROADS.>>YOU GET PEOPLE ON CELL
PHONES, READING THE PAPER. PULLING IN FRONT OF YOU SLOWING
DOWN. MANUVERING BACK AND FORTH ON THE
ROAD. NOT STAYING THE THEIR LANES. TRYING TO MAKE DECISIONS ON WHAT
AND IT’S MADE IT HARD FOR U
>>POLICE SAY NEXT WEEK TH
WILL CONDUCT HIGH-VISIBILITY
PATROLS LOOKING FOR DISTRACTED
DRIVERS. DELIA CONSIDINE SAYS SHE SEES IT
EVERY DAY.>>DEFINITELY YOU CAN SEE IT
GOING DOWN THE HIGHWAY
YOU CAN LOOK TO THE RIGHT AND
SEE SOMEONE LOOKING DOWN NOT
EVEN WATCHING THE ROAD SO VERY
CONCERNING.>>I TRAVEL A LOT FOR WORK, SO
IT’S SOMETHING I DEFINTELY SEE
AT STOP LIGHTS. YOU CAN SEE PEOPLE’S HEADS GOING
DOWN AND U
>>THE PENALTY FOR DISTRACTED
DRIVING IS A $124 FINE BUT
OFFICIALS WANTED TO STRESS TODAY
THAT THE CONSEQUENCES CAN BE FAR GREATER THAN THA
REPORTING LIVE,
