North Carolina law requires all operators and passengers of motorcycles and mopeds to wear a DOT certified helmet. In 2011, an estimated 190 – 226 traumatic brain injury hospitalizations were prevented because of North Carolina’s universal helmet law (Naumann, Marshall, Proescholdbell, Austin, and Creppage, 2015).
In 2012, 30% of motorcyclists killed on North Carolina roads were riding with a BAC over the legal limit (NHTSA).
