Motorcycle Hit By Passing Car or Truck

North Carolina law states that all motorcyles are entitled to the full use of a lane.  Also, no motor vehicle can be driven in a way that deprives a motorcycle of the use of a full lane.

This means that cars and trucks cannot pass a motorcycle by using a portion of the motorcycle’s lane to make the pass.

We see many cases where a motorcyclist is hit by a car or truck who is passing the motorcycle but does not give the motorcycle the use of the full lane.  Any car or truck who passes a motorcycle in this manner is breaking North Carolina law.
