When the Cadillac is heading on the freeway to the final destination, the six passports of all involved, are pulled out, but the three characters in the car know that the other three are either dead or caught. Why would they be carrying those extra three unnecessary passports at this point? Since they have just stated that the clothing worn before - including the work gear from the foundry have been burned, it would be assumed that those unneeded passports be burned also as they would be useless at this point, and connect them to the others. They state that they will ditch the passports later upon destination. Coming to a traffic jam, they are stuck with the passports, but no mention is made of this if police do a search of cars and trucks: the two men captured at the weigh-in stop could have snitched on the others identities, and they would not be able to toss the passports in heavy daylight traffic.
