Raising speed limits? By all means. Doffing motorcycle helmets and extending the waiting period for divorce? Not so much.
That is the result of a new Elon University Poll on proposals being considered by the state legislature.
The proposal to increase the speed limit from 70 to 75 miles per hour on certain interstates had the support of 58 percent of North Carolinians, according to the poll.
But 74 percent opposed changing the state law to allow motorcyclists to ride without a helmet.
The proposal to extend the waiting period for a divorce from one year to two years was opposed by 69 percent of state residents, the survey found.
The bill to reduce early voting from two-and-half-weeks to one-and weeks was opposed by 59 percent of the respondents.
