NH lawmakers propose Mass. border signs
CONCORD, N.H.—Some New Hampshire Republicans are proposing that signs be set up along unmarked roads leading into Massachusetts, saying: "Warning: Massachusetts Border 500 Feet."
The Eagle-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/tyA02V) the signs would be sponsored by businesses who want to help protect their customers from unwittingly breaking the law because they aren't aware what state they are in.
The lawmakers say laws relating to seat belts, guns, cellphones, motorcycle helmets, fireworks and knives are among those they want to warn people about.
Rep. Jennifer Coffey of Andover is sponsoring the bill. She says, for example, in New Hampshire, it's legal to not wear a seat belt or helmet. That's not the case in Massachusetts.
