RAYMOND, NH - A state worker took a chunk of ice to the head while driving some five car-lengths behind a large box truck on Thursday afternoon so police put out a statewide press release reminding drivers that a duty to remove snow and ice from all size vehicles before you drive is now the law in the Granite State.
"Jessica's Law" is part of New Hampshire's negligent driving statute and it was intended to prevent exactly the kind of mishap that sent a New Hampshire Department of Transportation worker to the hospital on Thursday with a head laceration and other potential injuries.
Although the incident occurred on Route 101 in Raymond, the law applies to anyone driving anywhere within New Hampshire, including Vermont residents who come over to work or shop.
