Revving up for a road trip

Will I need to carry an insurance ID card?
7 of 8

Some states may require you to carry proof of insurance, such as an insurance ID card, apart from your vehicle registration, Ball says.

If you live in a state that doesn't require an insurance card, but are planning to travel, make sure you know the requirements of any states you'll be visiting.

Otherwise, you may be ticketed if you're stopped by police and don't have adequate proof of insurance, she says.

Check with a state's division of motor vehicles to find out the rules before traveling.
