Man going wrong way on I-93 arrested for drunk driving

In New Hampshire and elsewhere, one of the most dangerous violations a driver can make is to enter and travel on an interstate highway in the wrong direction. This is nearly always a result of negligent and even reckless driving. When the driver is also engaging in drunk driving, the consequences almost always lead to horrific tragedy.

Workers' compensation benefits apply when safety fails

New Hampshire is the home to many manufacturing companies. Safety is always a concern in such operations, particularly those that employ a variety of heavy machinery. Workers often suffer some of the most gruesome work injuries in manufacturing plants. When injuries occur, the first and sometimes only line of monetary reparations lies in the benefits made available through the employer's workers' compensation insurance policy.

Drug charges fail if initial stop and search is unconstitutional

New Hampshire and federal constitutional principles strictly govern the circumstances in which the authorities may stop and search persons in public places. They may do so only if they have reasonable and articulable suspicion of criminal activity afoot. In a recent 8:20 a.m. arrest on drug charges, a Manchester police officer stopped a woman and two men in the rear of an apartment building in Manchester. The 31-year-old female suspect allegedly failed to follow police commands to keep her hands away from her midsection and also then grabbed for the officer's weapon.

Police bring drug charges against woman accused of selling pills

The authorities in New Hampshire do not usually distinguish those cases where a suspect arrested for drug dealing is really a low-level actor with a high-level personal drug addiction. It is usually the responsibility of defense counsel to weed out the human facts existing behind a prosecution on drug charges. Sometimes, the worst outcome is for the criminal justice system to put an individual behind bars when that person needs treatment instead of harsh punishment.

Police charge driver in one-car collision with drunk driving

New Hampshire authorities are often tipped off to the possibility of impaired driving when they investigate a reported accident. The circumstances may indicate that the operator did not use due care and thus caused the events to occur. However, where the operator is seriously injured, the investigative process of gathering evidence of drunk driving may be partially obstructed. In such situations, police may not in the end have enough evidence to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Uber accident: What to do in the aftermath

Autonomous vehicles from Uber are not exempt from problems. One recent accident in Arizona resulted in the death of a woman whom a self-driving Uber car hit. Despite the tragedy, it has not stopped New Hampshire lawmakers from wanting autonomous vehicle testing on state roadways in the near future.
