State Rep. Peter Lucido’s electronic automobile registration law signed by Gov. Rick Snyder back in June becomes effective Thursday.
Drivers will be able to share electronic proof of registration – whether it be photo, email or text – during the course of a traffic stop.
“It’s 2017 – technology is part of our everyday life,” said Lucido, of Shelby Township. “Starting Thursday, life will be a lot easier for drivers and police officers.”
Lucido’s electronic registration law follows similar legislation enacted in 2016 that allows for electronic proof of vehicle insurance.
“I am certain that the number of citations written for misplaced registration will drastically decrease with this new law,” Lucido said. “This is a big win for taxpayers and police officers.”
