Some Granite State Republicans want to make sure people know where they’re going before they cross the border into the Bay State.
Six GOP lawmakers want the Department of Transportation to erect signs along every unmarked road leading from New Hampshire into Massachusetts, stating: “Warning: Massachusetts Border 500 Feet.”
The signs would be sponsored by businesses that want to help protect their customers from unwittingly breaking the law because they aren’t aware what state they are in, several of the sponsors said.
Cross a state line and laws change. That’s especially true between New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Laws relating to seat belts, guns, cellphones, motorcycle helmets, fireworks and knives are among those lawmakers want to warn people about. That’s not to mention alcohol and tobacco prices and New Hampshire’s tax-free shopping.
