time-lock safe legal issues

Would there be legal issues with possessing a time-lock safe in a vehicle? I have a 10" x 12" time lock safe for myself which I use to keep credit cards, goodies or anything else I need to dole out to myself in small amounts. I'm leaving on a trip to California and it seems this item may cause issues if I were to be pulled over for any reason. Anybody know the law concerning this? Should I just leave it at home?
