Good points. Basis point 3 we could take any number of prints.
Not all cops are bad. But the ones who are mean will find out ways to mint money from the ones who are stopped and interrogated. Even if you show them all documents, what if they take the original and charge you stating that it is just a color photocopy and still demand you to bring the original? Eventually you would have to either bribe and leave or just stay put. (There was a video on whatsapp of such incident).

Update - it seems they are asking for original everything
I was stopped today randomly, and then threatened with seizure of my DL and RC because i didn't have the original of my Insurance. Cop asked me for money, didn't give a receipt and asked me to leave.

The original of my insurance came out of my own laser printer. I hope cops have heard of buying/renewing insurance online!

That's the same thing I thought of when I read greenhorn's post.

Get a color print out (the name of the insurance company in the letterhead would be in color mostly) to convince the cops that it is the real deal.

My concern has always been about some dirty cop taking away my originals. Although I have not been stopped any time recently, my first offering are the copies and not the originals.
