Car insurance e-cards debut in New York state

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Some New York drivers will now be able to keep their proof of insurance on their smart phones.

The Cuomo administration announced that GEICO has become the first insurance company in New York allowed to provide customers with electronic identification cards on their smart phones and electronic devices. The e-card will be available to New York customers on the GEICO app starting Tuesday.

The state Department of Motor Vehicles changed its regulations in April to allow insurers to issue e-cards. The e-cards can be used when registering vehicles and during traffic stops.
