A state lawmaker proposed a bill that seeks to create a digital driver’s license in order to benefit drivers.
National Action Party Assemblywoman Amintha Briceño introduced the proposal to change state’s law that would register Baja California in the nation’s digital license registry.
If enacted, the bill would save users time whenever their documents are taken by the police while being cited.
“We must seek innocent mechanisms to help citizens pay their fines when a misdemeanor is committed,” the lawmaker said.
With a digital driver’s license users would not see their document taken by the police, especially for those visiting the city, Briceño added.
Digital driver licenses would not represent an additional cost for public agencies and could be downloaded to any mobile device.
The lawmaker explained that the proposal would get the government and citizens closer while improving service to residents.
