Bill summary

Senate committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.

Further amends the definition of modified utility vehicle in GS 20-4.01, which is a cognate of passenger vehicle in GS Chapter 20, to alternatively include a custom-built motor vehicle rather than a manufactured motor vehicle that meets the other specified criteria, as amended. 

Revises the proposed changes to GS 20-121.1 to explicitly prohibit modified utility vehicles from operating on any street or highway having four or more travel lanes (previously, lanes) unless the posted speed limit is 35 mph or less (was, regardless of the posted speed limit). Makes technical changes. 

Changes the act's short title.
