Some New Hampshire lawmakers want to protect their liberty-loving residents from inadvertently running afoul of Massachusetts law:
Some New Hampshire lawmakers are backing a bill that would put up border signs warning drivers about to enter Massachusetts.
Signs welcoming drivers to other states are common on major roads, but lawmakers said travelers on back roads might not realize they’re crossing a border and may be subject to different laws.
“You have to think about the fact that there is a huge amount of laws that change when you go from New Hampshire to Massachusetts,” said Rep. Jennifer Coffey, R-Andover. “You don’t want to get caught on the other side of the line with illegal fireworks in an uninsured vehicle without your seat belt.”
Some of these would be helpful on the Virginia-DC border too.
