New legislation allows proof of insurance on smart phones

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

If you get pulled over, new legislation has made it easier to provide police documentation.

Legislation going into effect on Jan. 1 allows drivers to provide proof of insurance on their cell phones.

All you have to do is show police an image of your insurance card on your smart phone.

To be clear, you don’t have to give an officer access to your phone – in fact the law does not allow police to view anything other than your policy on your phone, unless they have probable cause to search it.
