first_img Categories: News 26Mar State House approves Nesbitt bill helping Michigan drivers to avoid tickets, fines Michigan residents who are pulled over while driving will have a chance at avoiding tickets and resulting fines, thanks to a bill authored by Rep. Aric Nesbitt and approved today in the state House of Representatives with strong bipartisan support.HB 4193 will allow motorists to provide proof of insurance electronically during traffic stops. More than half of states currently allow this practice, and Michigan is the only state in the Midwest that does not.“With modern technology in our hands, we should use it as much as possible to make life easier for Michigan residents,” said Rep. Nesbitt, R-Lawton. “This common-sense change allows drivers to use their phone to demonstrate proof of insurance coverage during a traffic stop, avoiding an unnecessary trip to the local police station to show a paper proof of insurance that may have been misplaced.”The bill now goes to the Senate for further action.last_img
