you live in a police stateso, you guys just carry cash, ID, credit cards, subway/bus pass, driver's license, etc. all loose in your pocket? we also need to have health insurance cards handy.
ID! Driver's licence! I have a picture of my dog loose in my pocket too!!!
back in the day, we used to keep mugger money in our pocket. an easily assessable $20 bill in case some junkie blind-sided you, could quickly hand it over and he'd usually quickly bugger off before struggling to get your wallet.
