The recent legal trend would simplify the traffic stops and courthouse visits that most motorists dread when they are issued fix-it tickets for failing to have evidence of coverage.
The Court Statistics Project estimates that, in 2009, state courts handled more than 58 million traffic violation cases, which all likely involved motorists who were required to show their proof of coverage.
"These new laws give motorists a paperless option that will prevent them from having to fumble through the glove compartment only to find out their proof of insurance card was misplaced," according to a statement from the trade group Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI).
PCI applauded the recent developments in the Golden State, saying that it showed that politicians were "adapting financial responsibility laws to keep up with ever-changing technology."
