The days of forgetting to put your new auto insurance ID cards in your car may be gone as a bill recently passed committee in Sacramento allowing proof of insurance to be available on your smart phone as reported in the Insurance Journal.
Assembly Bill authored by Assemblyman Mike Gatto, D-Silver Lake, would enable a person required to provide evidence of financial responsibility to do so through the use of a mobile electronic device, according to the bill’s wording.
The bill would amend sections of California’s insurance and its vehicle codes. The bill states:
“Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any insurer issuing policies of automobile liability insurance or motor vehicle liability insurance shall, upon request of either the named insured or the Department of Motor Vehicles, promptly issue to that person or the department written verification as to the existence of that coverage, and issue, upon the request of the insured, verification as to the existence of that coverage, to a mobile electronic device.”
The bill would also amend Section 16028 of the vehicle code to read: “The evidence of financial responsibility may be provided using a mobile electronic device.”
