New Laws in NC
Legislators passed 577 laws while they were in Raleigh this year. They all took effect 12/2/09.
You might want to know this . . . . .
Texting while driving becomes expensive - a misdemeanor that carries a minimum fine of $100.
License plate frames become illegal if they cover the state name or registration stickers. Lawbreakers (ha!) will be warned for the next year; after that police can hand out fines.
Porta-potties get new respect (yes, this was what they put in the N&O). It will be misdemeanor to steal, vandalize or deface a portable toilet or the trucks that pump them out.
