North Carolina Motorcycle Safety Act Now Law

On December 1st, the North Carolina Motorcycle Safety Act went into effect. The new law aims to protect motorcyclists across the state from unsafe movements by other vehicles on the roadway. Now, drivers who make unsafe movements around a motorcycle which force it to unsafely change lanes or run off the road will be fined $200. If the unsafe movements result in a accident or personal injury of the motorcyclist, the driver will be fined $500. The full text of the law can be viewed here.
