Bill could eliminate the need to sign car registration form

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — After a Johnson County woman contacted her state representative about receiving a ticket for not signing her vehicle registration, that legislator has created a bill that may change the law in her favor.

24-Hour News 8 news partner The Daily Journal reports Rep. Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) proposed a bill so motorists will no longer face fines for failing or forgetting to sign the back of their vehicle registration forms.

Current law states motorists can face a fine of $120 to $160 if they don’t sign the form. The proposed form would eliminate a signature requirement. The Indiana House of Representatives and Indiana Senate has approved the bill and is now in the hands of the governor for signature.
