If you read the details on Indiana, It appears you can have a scanner in your vehicle if you have an amateur radio license, as is the case in most states that restrict scanner use. If you are transporting it in your car, your best bet would be to put it in the trunk with the batteries and antenna removed. If you really feel the need to have it in your vehicle, get an amateur radio license and then you wont have to worry about it.

By the way, a scanner will not do you much good in an emergency because you cant talk to anyone on it. In that situation, a cell phone would be the ideal thing to have. Even if the phone doesn't have service connected, you can still call 911.
