Arizona OKs paperless option on insurance proof

Arizona motorists will be able to use their smart phones to prove to a police officer that they have insurance for their vehicles.

Gov. Jan Brewer has signed into law a bill to have Arizona join Idaho in permitting motorists to use a wireless communication device to show proof of auto insurance.

Arizona motorists currently must either show an insurance identification card or a photocopy of the insurance policy. But the Property and Casualty Insurance Association of America says the new law will permit use of an application displaying an image of the insurance card.

The Arizona legislation says displaying the insurance information doesn’t mean drivers are authorizing police to access other information on the device.

The legislation takes effect 90 days after the legislative session ends.
