Individuals who are convicted of either aggravated DWI or of a second or subsequent DWI offense, must complete New Hampshire’s seven day residential Multiple Offender Program (MOP). The cost of the program is approximately $1,500, and is to be paid out-of-pocket by the individual required to attend the program. The MOP represents but one requirement set forth by the state of New Hampshire that must be completed by individuals found guilty of DWI.
The Department of Health and Human Services maintains information about New Hampshire MOPs and other, state-approved equivalent programs. After completing of the program, continuing after-care recommendations will be decided upon. After all necessary treatment has been completed, license and driving privileges may finally be restored.
For drivers who do not have a prior DWI conviction, enrollment in and completion of the Impaired Driver Intervention Program (IDIP) is required. This program takes the form of a twenty hour course that must be completed prior to license privileges being restored. Just like the MOP, successful completion of this course is followed up with an evaluation process to determine whether or not the individual requires any after-care treatment before license and driving privileges may be restored.

A traffic accident in Hudson has left a man seriously injured, and the cause of the accident is being investigated as a possible DWI. According to a wmur.com report, a 24-year-old man was driving his 2000 Chevy Cavalier near 300 Derry Street when he lost control of his vehicle, allegedly colliding with two utility poles which split his car into two pieces. The man was ejected from the vehicle, and was taken to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center for initial treatment before being transferred to Boston Medical Center. The man’s injuries have been deemed serious and possibly life-threatening.
According to the report, police and investigating officers believe that alcohol and excessive speed may have played a contributing role in the crash. The 24-year-old may be charged with felony DWI. However, in order to truly determine the cause of the accident, every detail needs to be thoroughly examined to ensure that the rights of the involved motorist are not infringed upon in any way. That is, while investigators may assume at this point that the man is guilty of DWI, such an assumption should not take precedent over an examination of all available details.

Fewer fatalities on the road are always a good thing, regardless of the size of the decrease. Fortunately, New Hampshire’s decrease in the number of highway fatalities over the course of the past year has been quite substantial. According to an eagletribune.com article, New Hampshire has experienced a 25% decrease in the number of traffic fatalities that have occurred on Granite State Highways. Reportedly, 99 people have died in traffic accidents this year compared to 131 people who died during the same time period in 2008.
Reasoning for the decrease is speculated to have been caused by a more vigilant enforcement of traffic safety practices by law enforcement and better driving habits on the part of motorists, such as always wearing one’s seatbelt. The New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency also cites the downbeat economy as another factor that may be preventing accidents, namely because not as many people are using their vehicles as a means of conserving finances. Regardless of the causes, it is a welcomed sign that New Hampshire’s roads and highways are becoming just a little bit safer for motorists and pedestrians alike.
