DON’T LET THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA TELL YOU YOU CAN’T TAKE A CHILD UNDER 10 ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE. STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS. EMAIL THE NC LEGISLATURE. DEMAND THEY REMOVE HOUSE BILL 39. Even if you are not from NC, this kind of Gestapo legislation could snowball to your state. Your letters and calls are working. Several reps have withdrawn support. Keep it up. Candidates are needed to oppose Representative Nelson Cole, Rockingham County. If his constituent had a problem with a child being returned from visitation on a motorcycle, it is not a matter for the state legislature. After 6 terms, Representative Cole should know the introduction of legislation is not to solve family matters.

LET THOSE WHO RIDE DECIDE

NC Helmet Law Chapter 20

§ 20-140.4.  Special provisions for motorcycles and mopeds.
  (a)No person shall operate a motorcycle or moped upon a highway or public vehicular area:
       (1) When the number of persons upon such motorcycle or moped, including the operator, shall exceed the           number of persons which it was designed to carry.
       (2) Unless the operator and all passengers thereon wear safety helmets of a type approved by the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles. (NOTE: THERE IS NO LIST OF APPROVED HELMETS!)
  (b) Violation of any provision of this section shall not be considered negligence per se or contributory negligence per se in any civil action.
  (c) Any person convicted of violating this section shall have committed an infraction and shall be fined according to G.S.20-135.2A(e) and (f). (1973, c. 1330, s. 6; 1989, c. 711, s. 1.)

Congress Says No to effort to selective removal of motorcycle safety funding.
Thank you for your fast response!
5/11/05
Worldwide Bikers, Raleigh, NC
Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J), tried to deny funding for motorcycle safety programs to states that do not conform to his bubblewrap idealogies. Motorcyclists quickly responded by calling their Congressional reps to say Keep Helmet Laws a State Issue. Read the MRF Call to Action. Thanks!

NOTE: NC Senator Dole is one of the 28 who voted in favor of Lautenburgs’ ammendment to remove motorcycle safety funding and against states rights.

Amendment to NC Helmet laws proposed...again!
Worldwide Bikers, April 19, 2005, Raleigh, NC
For those of you who know the story, you know what to do, and just need to know the bill number. It is House Bill 1289, introduced by Representative John Sauls, District 51. Every year we seem to get closer and closer to the return of a right to decide, regarding the wearing of helmets. The right to decide was stripped from the citizens by North Carolina law in the 1960’s. Once you lose a right, it is very difficult to get it back. Legislative warriors have actively tried to get this right returned to us for many years. You can help by contacting your legislative representative and asking them to support HB 1289. Please call or write today. Who represents me? Also, please thank Representative Sauls.

Senator Tony Rand poised to act on NC Motorcycle Awareness Funding Proposal.
6/16/2005 Raleigh, NC
The publisher of Worldwide Bikers met today with NC Senator Majority Leader Tony Rand (D-Cumberland County) to present a North Carolina Motorcycle Awareness Funding proposal. The Senator is going to get the proposal to the Highway Patrol and/or take other action on it. Since it is past filing deadlines, the bill would most likely be introduced during the 2006 session.

This would fund the production and distribution of attention getting professional radio ads with motorists as the target audience. We agreed that the Highway Patrol may be best suited for sending out the bid and administering the grant. We agreed that $50k used correctly should be able to produce several excellent ads. Senator Rand believes it may also cover the cost of a couple television spots. The ads would then be distributed for use as public service announcements by broadcasters, and serve as a reminder to motorists to be more aware of motorcyclists.

Who represents me?

Email NC DOT to report intersections in North Carolina where traffic lights don’t detect motorcycles.
