Proof of Insurance
Drivers in most states are required to carry proof of insurance with them whenever they operate a motor vehicle. If a driver is stopped by police or is involved in a collision on the roadway, they are typically required to show proof of insurance at the scene and may be ticketed and fined if they are unable to do so.
It is important for every driver to maintain proper insurance coverage to protect themselves, their property, and others on the road.

The most common way to show proof of insurance is to carry an insurance card with you. Most companies will issue an insurance card to drivers after they purchase a policy with the company. The most common place to keep your insurance card is the glove compartment, windshield visor, or any easy-to-reach spot in your vehicle. In the event of a traffic stop or collision, most drivers like to have their insurance cards handy to show to law enforcement officers.
Many insurance companies provide proof of insurance by mail or e-mail. Emailed cards can be printed immediately and are especially convenient for drivers who need to show that they are maintaining financial responsibility for their vehicle.
