News surfaced a few months ago that North Carolina wanted to outlaw the iconic "Carolina Squat." The North Carolina House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed House Bill 692 and forwarded it to the state Senate. Here's how the bill reads: “A private passenger automobile shall not be modified or altered by elevating more than three inches from the manufacturer’s specified height in the front and lowering the automobile more than two inches from the specified height in the rear.”
On a petition in support of the measure, 70,000 signatures were collected. Critics have claimed that the modifications needed to make the trucks sit in this position are unsafe. Regardless, the Carolina Squat had spread throughout both Carolinas. However, due to Governor Roy Cooper's signature of House Bill 692, automobiles that are lower in the back than the front will be prohibited in North Carolina starting December 1st, 2021, according to WTKR news.
North Carolina is nearly the only state that does not restrict the height of car bumpers. With the signing of House Bill 692, this is no longer the case, and you may no longer raise or lower your ride height by more than 3 inches. Even though raised and lowered automobiles are common among car enthusiasts, legislators were concerned about the potentially dangerous position: your headlights will be less effective since the front end is pointing upward and you can't see what's ahead of you when you're driving.
It also has an impact on the truck's maneuverability. This isn't going to be like tinted windows, where you obtain a fix-it ticket, remove them, and replace them right away. You'll be subjected to harsh penalties once the law takes effect. If owners are cited 3 times for speeding in this manner, the legislation states that they may lose their driver's license for a year.
