What Are North Carolina Laws Regarding Bicyclists?

Like some other states, North Carolina defines a bicycle as a vehicle that is subject to state traffic laws. Therefore, every bicyclist in Charlotte and elsewhere in North Carolina must follow the same laws and rules as a driver of a passenger car or other motor vehicle. An experienced bicycle accident lawyer in Charlotte explains that as a result of this law, North Carolina cyclists are not allowed to:

- Operate their bicycles under the influence of alcohol or drugs

- Run through a red light

- Ride in the direction of oncoming traffic

North Carolina law also imposes several other rules that require specific actions from bicyclists in the state. These laws state that cyclists must:

- Stay off fully controlled-access highways such as interstates

- Take alternate routes when there is a fully controlled-access highway

- Have a white light on the front of the bike and a red reflector or illumination on the rear

- Wear a helmet while riding a bike only if the rider is under the age of 16 (adults riding a two-wheeler during daylight hours do not need to wear any forms of protective gear and equipment)
