     SENATE ENROLLED ACT No. 582



     AN ACT to amend the Indiana Code concerning motor vehicles.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Indiana:

    SECTION 1. IC 9-25-5-4 IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2001]: Sec. 4. (a) To avoid a current driving license suspension or vehicle registration suspension under this article, a person identified under section 2 of this chapter who receives a request for evidence of financial responsibility must provide the bureau with a certificate of compliance indicating that financial responsibility required by IC 9-25-4-1 was in effect with respect to the motor vehicle on the date of the accident described in the accident report.
     (b) Proof that the bureau:
        (1) did not receive a certificate of compliance from a person presented with a request for evidence of financial responsibility under section 2 of this chapter within forty-five (45) days after the date on which the person was presented with the request;
        (2) received a certificate of compliance that did not indicate that financial responsibility was in effect with respect to the motor vehicle that the person was operating on the date of the accident described in the accident report; or
        (3) suspended a current driving license or vehicle registration under IC 9-25-6-3 after presenting a person with a request for evidence of financial responsibility under section 2 of this chapter;


is prima facie evidence in a civil action that the person presented with the request for evidence of financial responsibility did not have a motor vehicle liability policy in effect with respect to the motor vehicle that the person was operating on the date of the accident described in the accident report.
    SECTION 2. [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2001] IC 9-25-5-4, as amended by this act, applies to evidence admitted in any civil proceeding after June 30, 2001, to prove that a motor vehicle liability policy was in effect with respect to a motor vehicle on any date before, on, or after June 30, 2001.
