New Legislation for August 2015

Serge Semirog

August this year seems to be a quiet month for legislation.  In regard to automobiles, there is only one new change that you should be aware of: Senate Bill 345

This bill amends Chapter 20 of the North Carolina General Statutes pertaining to motor vehicles, and specifically adds a new section, 20-166.3, to clarify the maximum amount of time that the police may keep an impounded vehicle after a collision.  The section will read as follows:

"§ 20-166.3. Limit storage duration for vehicle damaged as a result of a collision.
(a) Limited Duration of Storage. – A motor vehicle that is towed and stored at the direction of a law enforcement agency following a collision may be held for evidence for not more than 20 days without a court order. Absent a court order, the vehicle must be released to the vehicle owner, insurer, or lien holder upon payment of the towing and storage fees.
(b) Application. – This section shall not apply to a motor vehicle (i) seized as a result of a violation of law or (ii) abandoned by the owner."

This new section will apply to any vehicles impounded after August 1st, 2015.  As a result, drivers cannot be deprived of their transportation for an unreasonably long time, or at least it got a lot more difficult to keep a motor vehicle for an extended period of time.  Senate Bill 345 clarifies the law and protects every day drivers from possible police abuse of the system.
