Scott and Cabinet advance smartphone insurance proof

by John Kennedy | December 10th, 2013

Motorists pulled over in Florida may soon be able to pull out their smartphones.

Gov. Rick Scott and the Cabinet unanimously approved letting state highway officials move forward with plans Tuesday to let drivers provide an electronic proof of insurance over the smartphones and tablets, instead of handing over the usual paper copy.

“I think it’s going to work just fine,” said Julie Jones, executive director of the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles.

Jones said a department rule change allowing the smartphone standard should be finalized sometime in January.  Paper copies will still be accepted, too.

But the move would make Florida the 30th state allowing electronic proof. With so many states joining in, many insurers now provide smartphone applications that include a driver’s insurance information.

“The whole idea is to make it easier for the consumer,” said Donovan Brown, a spokesman for the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America.

    This seems like a long time coming. Florida is slow to adapt to technology. Smart phone proof of insurance as been use in other states for years. I guess Florida waits until they see it work first.
