North Carolina helmet laws and motorcycle accident statistics

North Carolina law requires all motorcycle operators to wear helmets while riding their bikes anywhere in the state. Despite the increased danger, many North Carolina motorcyclists would prefer to ride without helmets.

During a failed attempt to change the law in May 2013, it took a dozen emergency room doctors to convince the General Assembly to keep the helmet law in effect.

Drunk driving accidents can be very costly in terms of the property that you lose or the damage to your property; even if you walk away from the accident, it costs money to fix your car, replace it and to replace items inside the car -- such as a laptop computer -- that may have been damaged in the crash. However, these well-known costs may only be a fraction of the cost of the crash if a loved one passes away.
