Heads up Maryland drivers! Fines enforcing a new law start this month.
The law requires drivers to carry a current insurance identification card, or he/she will face a $50 fine.
The card must be in a tangible or electronic format.
The law actually took effect last October, but the Maryland Insurance Administration said a delayed implementation of the fine allowed for more time to get the word out.
It’s all part of an effort to encourage drivers to travel insured.
“In the State of Maryland, you are required to have insurance,” said Tracy Imm, Director of Public Affairs, Maryland Insurance Administration. “This just kind of buttons everything up, so that we are in-fact making sure people do have insurance.”
Senator Thomas Middleton of Charles County sponsored the bill.
