RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Several changes covering two- and four-wheeled motor vehicles are about to take effect. They’re among about a dozen laws approved that North Carolina legislators agreed should be implemented with the start of state government’s new year.

The state’s gasoline tax is falling by another penny to 34 cents a gallon. It’s the last of three planned gas tax reductions initiated early last year. All moped owners now will need to show proof of liability insurance. This comes a year after mopeds started getting registered and displaying license plates. Late fees of at least $15 will now be assessed to motor vehicle registration renewals.

Other new laws mandate autism treatment coverage by state-regulated health insurance plans. Also, commercial builders can get a property tax break on their inventory of improved properties.
