State Rep. Peter Lucido testified in front of the Senate Insurance Committee Wednesday in support of his legislation, giving drivers the option to share an electronic proof of registration during a traffic stop.
“This legislation will not cost the state nor Michigan taxpayers anything,” said Lucido, of Shelby Township. “Technology is everywhere. With technology being so prevalent, people should have the option of having paper or electronic proof of registration.”
During a traffic stop, law enforcement officials will be allowed to confirm by taking the electronic device to their vehicle or requesting the documentation be forwarded by email or text.
The bill follows similar legislation enacted on 2016 that allows for electronic proof of vehicle insurance.
“This is a bill which makes it easier for drivers and police officers by giving an added option to confirm registration,” Lucido said. “It’s common sense for this to be approved in 2017.”
