Columbus—Today, the Ohio House of Representatives voted to pass SB 255 which allows Ohio motorists to provide proof of financial responsibility via a smart phone or other mobile electronic device during a traffic stop. When signed into law, Senate Bill 255, sponsored by State Senator Edna Brown (D-Toledo) will make Ohio the 36th state to pass similar legislation.
“I am very pleased that the Ohio House of Representatives supported SB 255 and moved Ohio one step closer to codifying this very simple rule that will add convenience for Ohio motorists,” Senator Brown said.
The proposed law would not eliminate the printed insurance identification cards currently in use, but would give Ohio drivers the option of providing the same information through an electronic device.
