N.H. Allows DWI First Offenders to Petition for Restricted Licenses

New Hampshire now allows certain first offenders who have been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DWI) to petition the Court for what has traditionally been known as a "Cinderella License." A restricted license allows a first offender who has served a 45-day license suspension to request a limited restoration of his or her right to operate a motor vehicle. A restricted license is not available to drivers who have been convicted of an offense involving a commercial motor vehicle.

In addition to providing proof of financial responsibility as required by NH RSA 265-A:28, first offenders must also submit an application that demonstrates the need for the license and satisfactory proof that:

(a) The ability to operate a motor vehicle is an occupational requirement;

(b) The ability to operate a motor vehicle is necessary to seek employment or to travel to and from a place of employment;

(c) The ability to operate a motor vehicle is necessary to travel to or from an alcohol or drug treatment or rehabilitation program;

(d) The ability to operate a motor vehicle is necessary to obtain regular medical treatment for oneself or a family member;

(e) The ability to operate a motor vehicle is necessary for the continuance of his or her education; or

(f) The ability to operate a motor vehicle is necessary to attend job training.

If granted, a person's restricted driving privileges are subject to certain limitations with regard to time, place and date of travel. The right to operate a motor vehicle is also limited to vehicles equipped with enhanced technology ignition interlock devices.

Work Injuries And Illnesses Impose Heavy Costs On Workers, Families And The Economy

"The failure of many employers to prevent millions of work injuries and illnesses each year, and the failure of the broken workers' compensation system to ensure that workers do not bear the costs of their injuries and illnesses, are truly adding inequality to injury." OSHA
