The Iowa Department of Transportation has announced the release of a mobile app that will allow its citizens to carry their official driver's license on their smartphone. Reportedly, the digital equivalent will be accepted by law enforcement officers.
Trombino said it's only logical for the Iowa DOT to develop a mobile driver's license app as more and more Iowans rely on their smartphones to conduct routine business. He pointed to the watch on his wrist as one example of a device that many younger Iowans have replaced by using their smartphones.
The digital driver's license is just one example of the Iowa DOT's push towards expanded use of new technology. The transportation agency has already installed dashboard cameras on snowplows and it is expanding a program for "paperless construction projects." The DOT is also expanding driver's license kiosk locations, and it has experimented with a new method for accelerated bridge construction through modular construction.
