New Auto Insurance Monitoring System Now in Effect in Some Parts of Louisiana

A new real-time auto insurance monitoring system is now being used in some parts of Louisiana to help police enforce the requirement that drivers are up to date on paying their premiums. The American Press reports the new monitoring system is being rolled out in three phases, beginning with trial runs by state police in Baton Rouge and Monroe that started on Sunday. It will be launched statewide for all state police troops next before eventually being open to all police, according to state officials.
