Did You Know It’s Illegal In NH To Sleep In Your Car While Drunk?
Picture this scenario - you're at a bar, where you've had a few drinks. It's closing time, and you feel like you've had one too many. For whatever reason, you're unable to find a ride home, so you decide to try to sleep it off in your car, rather than put yourself or others in danger. You're doing the right thing, right? Well according to New Hampshire law, you are not.
Current drunk driving laws in New Hampshire consider sleeping in your car close enough to driving it, therefore you could be charged with a DWI. A measure to revise this law recently passed through the Senate, but failed to make it's way through the House. So as it is, the current law stands. Do you think this is fair?
