Ohio may allow car insurance proof by smartphone



Published: Thu, June 13, 2013 @ 12:35 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio drivers could provide required proof of insurance using smartphones rather than the typical printed card under a proposed change in state law.

The bill would allow drivers to prove they are insured through information on electronic wireless communications devices such as cellphones, tablets and laptop computers.

Drivers could use the digital devices to provide the information to the registrar of motor vehicles, a law-enforcement officer, a traffic-violations bureau or a court.

Dean Fadel, vice president of government relations for the Ohio Insurance Institute, said 24 states have adopted rules similar to House Bill 20, and the institute supports the proposed change in the state’s financial-responsibility law.
