Electronic Proof of Insurance
As of August 23, 2013 a total of 28 states have adopted e-card laws and/or regulations that allow drivers to show evidence of insurance with their smart phone during a traffic stop. The 21 states to approve electronic proof of coverage laws in 2013 are: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. This list could grow even longer in 2013 as PCI is supporting legislation still moving in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Electronic proof of insurance coverage is the wave of the future and 28 state legislatures addressed the issue in 2013. PCI encourages other states to enact similar laws so drivers can use the latest technology to show evidence of coverage.
