    Default SANITIZE YOUR RIDE

    I know the discussion has been about obtaining sterile vehicles and all that jazz but the reality is that you probably wont have time for that always. You might need to use your POV to do what you need to do.

    To that end...some easily done stuff.

    Dont be the soccer mom that carries her entire life in thhe fourwheeled purse. Keep all your identifying docs for the ride in one place. Be able to grab them and take them if you may not be returning.

    Nothing left inside should have your name or address. And please avoid those stupid "my kid is an honor student" stickers.

    If you keep a war bag in the ride...be able to take it with you. Preemptively taking your plate off would not be a bad thing either. I make a point to always throw something on the dash to obscure a VIN as well...as an SOP.

    There is more...but these are a good starting point.

    I'd add the following
    - the home button on my GPS will take you to a police station a town away from where I live.
    - I've got a note on how to erase the codes from my garage and gate opener.
    - Note includes how to erase all destinations, routes, home address from GPS
    - My registration and insurance documents are photo copies with the address redacted. They are in a red Magpul Daka and all I have to do is grab that.
    - Road flares in my trunk could be ignited and dropped in the interior to clear out anything I missed

    Good point on removing the plates. Worth making sure you have the bits needed as front and back on my are different.

    Good idea on using the magpul daka. I’ll be doing this in my truck.

    Good idea with redacting the addresses off the paperwork. My stuff is in a low speed package as well.

    My "home" on my gps is down the road.

    The only two pieces of vehicle ID are the registration and insurance cards; copies of which are wallet sized and as such carried on person. Accessory items: flashlight, earpro, spare mags, gloves, balaclava, first aid kit, small water bottle, all kept in small discreet easy grab n go 10L backpack. Vehicle pretty much empty otherwise,

    Plates can be held on by magnets, you know. The strong rare earth kind if you're bumping along.

    I carry the insurance card on my phone in the app. Registration in a small plastic envelope in the glove compartment. Bag and essentials goes with me. Don't own a car with NAV on purpose, No OnStar or vehicle service subscriptions that use GPS either.

    I like the magnets idea. I have a newer car and have those cardboard advertisements they put in the plate frames if I need to drive for awhile without plates.

    My question here is are you prepared to let an officer go back to his car with your phone unlocked during a traffic stop? Rhode Island just passed a law prohibiting police officers from looking at other data on your phone while it's unlocked back in their patrol car. Interesting, you remain liable if the phone is damaged. http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/S...7/31-47-12.HTM

    I personally disable the bio features on my phone as you cannot be compelled to give up your password but you can be compelled to unlock using your finger print. The fast way to do that is power down your phone immediately as the password is needed when it powers back on.

    So other than subject to an investigation for a shooting or a crash or something of that nature...why would a PO want or even ask for your phone?

    Because some people keep things like their registration and insurance information as soft copies on their phones. Thus there is a good chance the office will take your phone with he/her/they/them to its patrol car and because you gave it to he/her/they/them/it/Labrador retriever they are now in Possession of your unlocked phone.

    What an outstanding way to get hemmed up.

    I carry two kinds of trauma kits. One for fixing it and one for causing it.
