That just might be part of the reason the insurance companies send out two or three cards per vehicle, and will generally give you as many as you ask for. My wife and I each carry one, and a third stays in the visor pocket.NYPD in AZ said:Keep your registration and insurance card on your person this way you don't have to open your glove compartment. I know when I pull someone over that seems a little shady my trigger finger gets itchy when they reach to open the glovebox.
Of course, it helps a lot that I forget my wallet less often than I forget to eat.
