    Is it a good or Bad idea to carry your trucks registration and owners card and insurance cards in the glove box or is it better to carry that information on your person ? I've wanted to ask this question for quite awhile. What think ye ? :gasp:

    I carry mine in the glovebox, though I do tend to keep a copy of the insurance card for the Saturn in my wallet as proof when I drive other people's vehicles. If I carried all my vehicles' info in my wallet, there wouldn't be space for anything else. :lol: Also relatives sometimes drive my trucks, so they would need the info if they get pulled over for some reason.

    I own too many vehicles and motorcycles to carry all that stuff in my wallet. It would take a file folder to hold all of it.

    I have three insurance carriers, and I keep the cards in my wallet except for the classic car insurer, which is carried in the door pocket of that car. Car isn't driven enough to bother carrying it in my wallet. All the other four wheeled vehicles have the same carrier. My motorcycles are with a different company. I also have a boat and two trailers. I carry the trailer registrations in my truck glove box, in a Ziplock bag, with my truck registration and an insurance card for the truck. The boat registration has to be in the boat. My view in general is that I always carry registrations in the vehicle. Always. No reason not to do that. I have one motorcycle with only a zippered pocket on some soft luggage to store the registration, and I have never had a problem storing my registration and insurance in that spot.

    The only time I remove that information from my vehicle is if it is going in for any type of service. I don't want some goon technician with a felony record for burglary to see where I live.

    I cannot speak of police in your area, but around here the police only ask for your drivers license and proof of insurance.

    I keep my registration in the glove box. You don't get asked for proof of insurance here in mass, guess a valid registration is your proof. If you lose your insurance the DMV is notified and you registration becomes invalid.

    I keep proof of insurance in the truck. Texas' registration is a sticker in the corner of the windshield and my truck's title stays in the safe at home.
