Laura’s Law – Is it Working?

June 25, 2013

In an effort to address DWI related fatalities, Tim Moore (R, Cleveland) championed House Bill 49 entitled Laura’s Law. Enjoying near unanimous, bipartisan support, it flew through both houses of the General Assembly and was quickly signed into law. Massive changes to the DWI laws in North Carolina went into effect on December 1, 2011. Now more than a year later, Representative Moore, Bill Powers and John Landreth, all attorneys, together with Dave Sloan of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and Senior Officer Tony Chesser of the Alcohol Beverage Control, comment on whether the law has accomplished its intended purposes.
