New guy here, haven’t made it to the introduction thread yet but have pertinent info.

N.C. G.S. 20-140.4A2 states drivers and passengers of autocycles with a roll bar or cage are not required to wear helmets.


Used to say “enclosed seating”

This sounds very familiar. I live in the state of Washington. When I bought my Slingshot the local dealer said no helmets are required. Many people said they talked to the State Patrol and or local law enforcement who said no helmets needed. So to be sure, I sent an email to the department of licensing and they said helmets were required.

Local police and the state patrol do not make or determine laws. If the law says helmets are required you may never get stopped BUT if you get into an accident and your passenger gets injured you could be in deep sh%t if the law says helmets are required.

I recommend that if you live in NC, or any other state, send an email to the DOL and ask them. Better still, follow Polaris’ recommendation and always wear a helmet. It could save your life.
