You should carry an insurance card in your wallet so it's with you when you rent a car or are driving a vehicle that is not yours.
Granted I rotate through Harborview Medical Center at least 4-6 months a year, I'm aware of what they face day in and day out. So, I have my respect for them. During the entire traffic stop, I was polite and addressed him as "officer" throughout our interaction. I did not argue with him and answered all his questions. I simply asked him to look into the trunk since there is a HUGE enveloped with Progressive's logo stamped on it. It was a new policy that I just got in the mail the day before so I just threw in the trunk w/o even thinking about it. Anyways, this is a non-issue at this point since the ticket has been fully dismissed in court.
