So you drive a moped? You better have insurance or be prepared to pay up

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Since July 1, moped drivers are required to carry insurance.

Thursday morning, 9 On Your Side checked in with local insurance agents to see if people are following the new law.

State Farm agent Cassius Williams says many moped drivers got insurance last year after being required to get a license plate and tags. He says he didn’t see many customers getting insurance this year.

“It’s just basic liability insurance,” said Cassius Williams, State Farm agent. “But in North Carolina, the law now says, if you have liability insurance, you also have to have an uninsured motorist. What they end up with is the minimum liability insurance and minimum uninsured motorist insurance.”

If you get pulled over and don’t have liability insurance, plan on paying a large fine.
