This is great news and really long overdue. Michigan drivers will now be allowed to leave their vehicles running and unattended if on private property, thanks to new legislation signed by Gov. Rick Snyder.

This comes after a Michigan man got screwed because he left his running vehicle unattended back in the winter. Remember this guy? He was warming up his car and got ticketed for $128.

According to ABC12, Snyder also signed legislation allowing motorists to show proof of their auto registration to a police officer electronically. It is similar to a 2015 law that lets those pulled over to show proof of their auto insurance on a phone or other mobile device instead of a hard copy.
