The Houston County tag office is trying out some new technology.

This is the car the alleged shooting suspect may be driving. It is a blue Mustang with dealer tags from Elkins, West Virginia.

The county is one of 10 in the state participating in a pilot program.
This new system will allow officials to verify a driver's car insurance.
The program was launched by the state revenue department, and officials say it will speed up the tag line.
All officials have to do is enter your name in the system, and seconds later know if you have liability insurance.
"We’ll put your name into the computer like we always do. It’s usually pretty populated on the computer screen. We put it in and push the button and it says yes you do have insurance because your insurance has verified that you do, or no you do not."

The program will go into effect permanently in January.
