The North Carolina House last week rejected a bill requiring insurance for moped drivers. The House voted 51-54 against concurring on a Senate version of a bill that would have required insurance and registration with the state.The insurance requirement has been a sticking point between the two chambers. The House version previously only mandated that mopeds be registered with the Division of Motor Vehicles. Lawmakers have said registering mopeds would make it easier for law enforcement to identify and keep track of them on the road and when they are used in crimes.
