AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to  authorizing
  the  production  of proof of insurance by the use of electronic trans-
  mission to portable electronic devices

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Paragraph (b) of subdivision 1 of section 312 of the vehi-
cle and traffic law, as amended by chapter 557 of the laws of  1994,  is
amended to read as follows:
  (b) (1) The owner of such motor vehicle shall maintain proof of finan-
cial  security  continuously  throughout the registration period and his
failure to produce proof of financial security when requested to  do  so
upon  demand  of  a  magistrate, motor vehicle inspector, peace officer,
acting pursuant to his special duties, or  police  officer,  while  such
vehicle  is being operated upon the public highway, shall be presumptive
evidence of operating a motor vehicle without proof of financial securi-
ty. Upon the production of proof of financial security such  presumption
is  removed.    Production of proof of financial security may be made by
mailing such proof to the court having jurisdiction in the  matter,  and
any   necessary  response  by  such  court  or  acknowledgement  of  the
production of such proof may also be made by mail. When  insurance  with
respect to any motor vehicle, other than a motorcycle, is terminated the
owner  shall surrender forthwith his registration certificate and number
plates of the vehicle to the  commissioner  unless  proof  of  financial
security otherwise is maintained in compliance with this article.
  (2)  PROOF OF FINANCIAL SECURITY MAY BE ESTABLISHED BY MEANS OF TRANS-
MISSION OF AN ELECTRONIC VERSION OF THE OWNER'S INSURANCE  CARD  TO  THE
OWNER'S  OR  OPERATOR'S  SMART PHONE OR OTHER PORTABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICE
