In August, Illinois approved a law that allows motorists to provide proof of insurance on their smartphones. However, some Illinois law enforcement agencies are wondering how the regulation will be enforced in practice. Normally, an officer would take the paper proof of insurance card back to their vehicle to fill out a citation and complete necessary paperwork.
