If you have ever been pulled over, you know that it can be a nerve-wracking experience. The officer stands by while you fumble through your glove box (the one you haven’t cleaned out in months) searching for your insurance and registration. Most officers understand that you may have to look for your registration and insurance card, but if the officer already suspects you have been driving drunk, having trouble finding your registration and insurance could be viewed as an additional sign that you are impaired.
Keeping your registration and insurance together in small pouch can make them easy to grab and may make a traffic stop go more smoothly. Additionally, keeping your driver’s license in an easy-to-access place can help also.
