Exclamation New NC Laws

Quote:
"New N.C. Laws Go Into Effect This Weekend
Inside the Legislature, General Assembly

Posted: Nov. 29 3:57 p.m.
Updated: Today at 9:33 a.m.

Raleigh The start of December means dozens of North Carolina's new laws take effect, ranging from stiffer domestic violence penalties to banning school-bus drivers from using cell phones. The laws will:

* make it a misdemeanor, with a minimum $100 fine, for school-bus drivers who talk on the phone while driving
* make it harder for speeding motorists to get off with a lesser charge
* revoke the driver's license of someone who provides alcohol to a minor

* set rules so motorcyclists can go through a red light that won't turn green because the motorcycle is too light to trigger a sensor in the road
* create new felonies with which police can charge people who shoplift high-end merchandise or conspire to steal multiple times from a store with the intent to resell the goods
* make it a felony with possible prison time for someone who willfully kills a police or seeing-eye dog
* create a low-grade felony for anyone who vandalizes or defaces a grave marker, tombstone or other cemetery monument, no matter how small the damage
* prohibit alcohol inhalers, which use a mixture of vaporized alcohol and oxygen to put alcohol directly into the bloodstream
* make it easier to prosecute residential mortgage fraud by defining the practice and creating tougher punishments for repeat offenders
* make it a higher grade of misdemeanor to kill an animal through intentional starvation
* create an automobile "chop shop" law that makes it a felony for someone to disassemble a car that was illegally obtained or purchase one with an altered identification number
* order law enforcement to turn over copies of all crime investigation records to prosecutors so that they can be made available to defense lawyers
* make it a felony when abusers ordered by a judge to stay away from their victims have a weapon if they violate the order
* grant victims of trafficking temporary access to human services and legal aid even if they aren't legal state residents"

Thought these would be of interest to some of us NC people. I know theres some grey market stuff floating around out there and its now a felony to purchase a vehicle with an altered VIN or obtained illegally. Theres some other stuff that might be of interest to some younger members.

I wonder how they intend to show that the buyer KNEW that it was an altered car. Shouldn't they be going after the seller?

Usually it's the exact opposite, the buyer will have to prove he didn't know.
