Undated- After several false starts, the state finally is switching to a paperless system of keeping up with auto insurance records in efforts to reduce the number of uninsured drivers on the road.
Starting with the new year, police officers will be required to use the database to check on insurance anytime they pull someone over. A wallet-sized card from your insurance agent will not be enough to save you from a ticket for driving without insurance if you're pulled over.
If your insurance company doesn't show your insurance as current, you can't even buy a new tag for your car because, like driving, that also requires proof of insurance.
The system was supposed to go into effect in 2002 and again in 2003, but both times there were extensions because the database wasn't ready.
