A measured introduced in the North Carolina House would require instructions on how to deal with traffic stops for drivers in North Carolina, especially those in Driver Education programs.
The bipartisan proposal would add instructions to the driver license handbook on actions that a motorist should take during traffic stops, including appropriate interactions with law enforcement officers. Input from the North Carolina Highway Patrol, the North Carolina Sheriff's Association and the North Carolina Associations of Chiefs of Police would set the recommendations for motorists.
Regarding Driver Education, the measure would add at least six hours of instruction of the offense of driving while impaired and related subjects, at least six hours of actual driving experience and at least one hour of motorcycle safety awareness training.
The measure passed the 1st reading in the House and has been referred to the Committee On Transportation.
