      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Do we have a registration card for our vehicles ?

Recommended Posts

Valv

I've got pulled over in KS and asked insurance and registration cards.

I showed insurance and...told officer I didn't have the registration card for my truck and never had it, he believed me after showing valid insurance with vin # on it.

I have and had many vehicles in MN but never, ever had a registration card, does it exist ?

I believe it is part of the card that they send you to renew your license.

That is correct and in Minnesota we ARE required to have it with us in our vehicles.

Neiko is right. Part of your vehicle registration renewal form will say "Cab card" and it's to be kept in the vehicle. My youngest son got a ticket in AZ about 3 years ago for the same thing. The court dismissed the ticket upon showing prove of registration, the "Cab card".

Well problem is I don't have any vehicle older than 1 year, they are not new, just bought within this year, and all I had from DMV is a yellow paper with all the info, I guess I can put that in the glovebox.

I agree with above and yes, the yellow slip from the dmv is what you need to carry in the vehicle for the first year. Same goes for trailers as well.

There is also a registration card you tear off your title. It's small, but is labeled with all the info.

Yup, you need to carry it with you in your vehicle and produce it upon the request of Law Enforcement. The paper work you describe from the DMV would meet such requirements. I cant speak about all jurisdictions....but most only have a “fix-it-ticket” type of cite issued when you cant produce it. It basically says that you have X number of days to appear at court or the local PD to produce the registration....does not cost you anything...just time...unless the vehicle is really not registered. In most cases...this is the same for “No Proof of Insurance” cites as well.

Cliffy,

Does that apply to trailer registration even with the lifetime license?

Not quite true. Take a good look at the back of your receipt and it says "If your vehicle is taxed based on the gross weight of the vehicle, you must keep this card in the vehicle at all times". Vehicals 1 ton and over and trailers are taxed by weight.

To be honest, I just dont know. so far in my 10 year career, I have never found myself in a position to be asking about trailer regs. Sorry, I cant help you on that one...I am on my days off....I could do some digging when I return to work and post an update if no one finds an answer first.

I am not sure about trailers. Vehicles.. I believe its the bottom right portion ofthe title that is the vehicle registration, next to the sellers notice of sale part of the title.

As for boats, when you renew your registration, the part that doesnt stick to the boat is the registration.

It used to be that when you went to register your tabs, you got a tear off portion back from mndot registrar. Now all you get is the paper that you take to dmv to register and that is your registration to keep in car. If I remember right its blue and white.

I hope you're not tearing off that section of the title and keeping it in your vehicle or worse, keeping the whole title in your vehicle.

I always forget to put my insurance ID card in the vehicle, let alone the registration. Everytime I have been stopped the officer usually gets bored with me search and says nevermind I trust you (after I explained I would be happy to call my company while he waited). Some day I am sure I won't get as nice of an officer.

Good info though guys. I might have to dig up some sort of registration now...

I write about 15-20 "no proof of ins." cites per month....and about 1-3 end up not really having insurance. You would truely be amazed to see how many people are driving without insurance on their vehicles.

Has anyone else ever recieved a letter from the MN DMV where you have to provide proof of your insurance...either by snail mail or on-line? I guess MN went to a new system about a year or so ago...dont need to show insurance when you regs. a vehicle at the DMV...they just does a random audit by mail. I got one back in Feb...sort a neat idea.

Any thoughts?

Personally, I don't think one should be able to obtain his vehicle license without showing proof. We are required to carry liability insurance in Minnesota. Shouldn't we be able to substantiate it? The problem was that all you had to do was provide an insurance policy number but were they ever verified? Probably not as that would have cost a lot of time and money. What's worse is that we're more or less required to protect myself from those that do not have insurance. To me that is a crime in itself.

You were supposed to show an ins card when registering your vehicles. They had many cases where insurance was purchased, got card with 6 months/1 year expiration (but paid for 1 month) then dropped policy. Card still showed vehicle was insured, but there was actually no policy anymore.

Cliffy take note of this, but you probably know it.....I've guess you've seen all of the "tricks".

Actually this threas was aimed at your response as a Law Officer, I actually didn't know bout the card on title, I checked mine and....I already put it in my truck.

Thanks for the help guys....

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.
    • Bryan P
      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice! 
    • JMP_37
      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
