New Law Aims To Keep New Hampshire Drivers Safe

At Contemporary Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, our Derry NH area Jeep dealer serving Derry NH, we take safety very seriously. Distracted driving is the number one cause of car accidents and with all of today’s technology readily available, it’s the top distraction that drivers deal with.

Over the last four years, 116 fatal crashes caused by distracted driving have taken place in New Hampshire. While texting, a driver is 23 more times likely to crash; dialing a phone number increases the risk of crashing by three times. The state of New Hampshire is aiming to eliminate that distraction and decrease the number of fatal accidents!
