NC House bill would require registration, insurance for mopeds

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Though police say the driver of the car was at fault in a crash that killed a moped driver Wednesday night in Wilmington, the incident has brought the question of moped safety once again front and center.

It’s a question on the minds of lawmakers as well. In the North Carolina House of Representatives, a bill introduced this week would require mopeds be registered and carry liability insurance.

Pender County Republican Chris Millis is a sponsor. He says it’s just as much a public safety issue as it is an economic issue.

“The bill is most certainly a common sense piece of legislation,” Millis said. “Constituents have most certainly made it heard that this is something that needs to be treated in the same manner as a motorcycle on the road.”

A similar bill was introduced last year but not pursued. Millis says he feels confident the bill will pass this year.
