A measured introduced in the North Carolina House is now law after being signed by Governor Roy Cooper on Wednesday.
It requires instructions be added to the driver license handbook on actions that motorists 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 on how to deal with traffic stops for drivers in North Carolina, especially those in Driver Education programs.
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.
