Good point. Mom asked if I requested a confirmation be mailed. I just got off the phone before I yelled "Why didn't you answer the phone all of the other times I called, or responded to my e-mail?!"

You sure insurance is actually checked via computer? Seems they just look at the paper and accept that as sufficient evidence of insurance.

Shall I ask the next time I am pulled over?

There were articles posted four years ago that the police could run your plates and see if you had insurance, but like many older stories that intrigued me, I could not find any follow-up.

They cited me for not having a current proof of insurance. I need to set a reminder. I had not realized it was out-of-date. I handed him my last card and he said he could not use it.

Another officer here in Arizona told me he could use my old card. Yet another time, while I was looking for my card, the officer asked who my provider was, and then said he believed me.

Was he allowed to believe me?! Wasn't that against regulation?!

Arguably, I am doing something wrong, being stopped three times in four months on the same stretch of the I-40, but this officer said that as long as I can show I am currently insured, they should dismiss the charges.

This page says they will, which is good, because it is a $950 fine: http://courts.yavapai.us/Portals/5/F...e-Schedule.pdf

Keep your insurance documents updated, people!
Officers may use their own discretion on minor offenses. Also over taking on the right is a BAD thing to do, you're not supposed to do it. But in America, it's not a traffic violation. Almost all of Europe doing so will get you a huge ticket if you're caught.

In Europe the left lane is not the fast lane, it is the passing lane, and they will cite you for staying there.
