Greensboro Criminal Attorney Speaks About Bicyclist Safety Updated in North Carolina Traffic Laws:
Effective October 1, 2016, motorists may pass bicycles in no passing zones if the following conditions are met:
- The slower moving vehicle to be passed is a bicycle or moped;
- The slower moving vehicle is proceeding in the same direction as the faster moving vehicle;
- The driver of the fast moving vehicle either (i) provides a minimum of four feet between the fast moving vehicle and the slower moving vehicle, or (ii) completely enters the left lane of the highway; and
- The operator of the slower vehicle is not (i) making a left turn, or (ii) signaling that he intends to make a left turn
This amendment corresponds with N.C. Gen. Stat. § 20-150, which can be read here.
