Reminder to Follow “Jessica’s Law” This Winter and Remove Snow, Ice from Vehicles
Nov. 14 Incident a Timely Reminder
On November 14, at approximately 12:00 PM, Lebanon Police and Fire Departments responded to Interstate 89 Northbound between exits 18 and 19 for a report of a vehicle that was struck by snow and ice from another vehicle. The operator of the vehicle was hit with glass from the shattered windshield. The operator was evaluated by EMS personnel for minor injuries and refused transport to the hospital.
As the winter weather is upon us, The Lebanon Police Department would like to remind all vehicle operators that "Jessica's Law" requires all drivers to remove all snow or ice from their vehicles prior to travel on NH roads. Failure to comply with this is punishable under NH RSA 265:79-b (Negligent Driving).
Penalties for this are a fine of $250.00-$500.00 for a first offense with increased penalties for subsequent offenses; up to and including loss of license.
