Two Car Insurance Cards

Here is a minor little annoyance that car insurance companies can easily remedy.

The basic problem is the issuing of car insurance cards that do not have overlapping valid dates. For instance, in my wallet, I have a car insurance card that expires at the end of October. I also received another car insurance card, since I renewed my car insurance, that has an effective date start the first of November. This means that I have to carry both car insurance cards in my wallet until the first card expires. I might not remember to discard the expired card until I receive the next card in 6 months from now.

Why can't car insurance companies issue cards that have overlapping valid dates, so that they would make one less inconvenience to their customers? Every other company that issues cards is able to accomplish this simple task.
