Helping Motorists: Display of e-Car Insurance Gets Green Light from N.J. Assembly

Helping Motorists: Display of e-Car Insurance Gets Green Light from N.J. Assembly

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Craig Coughlin, Tim Eustace, Gordon Johnson and Carmelo G. Garcia that would bring motor vehicle insurance requirements in line with 21st century technology was unanimously approved by the full Assembly on Thursday.

Specifically, the bill (A-3905) would allow operators of motor vehicles to provide proof of insurance electronically.

“Nowadays, nearly everything is being accepted in electronic format, from airplane boarding passes and concert tickets to more and more insurance companies now providing electronic copies of car insurance,” said Coughlin (D-Middlesex). “Making e-copies a valid form of proof of insurance is a natural and appropriate progression to make life more convenient for motorists. For families especially, where multiple people might share the same car, this should make life easier not having to worry about having a paper insurance card every time someone takes the car out.”
