Do I have to carry proof of registration in my vehicle?

Drivers must carry a registration card in their vehicle including registration cards for any towed units that are required to be registered.  Registration cards are subject to inspection by any peace officer.  Any person violating this section (NDCC 39-04-55) will be assessed a fee of $20 dollars. However, a person cited for violation of this section may not be found to have committed the violation if the person, within 48 hours after being cited, displays the registration card to any peace officer.
