Should I Consent to a Police Search?

When An Officer Pulls Me Over, Should I Consent To A Search? No!!

Officers see every traffic stop as a potential drug possession arrest. Officers become more suspicious if you are young, traveling from out of state, driving a rental car, or the driver's description of where you are going does not match a passenger's. Even without any suspicion, officers may ask for permission to search your car. Don't assume there isn't any incriminating evidence in your car. If an officer finds any drugs in your car, he will arrest you. If you refuse consent to search the vehicle, you can challenge the illegality of the stop, detention and search in court. If he says he will call for a drug dog, let him.  Usually, this is an idle threat or a drug dog is not available.  ALWARY REFUSE CONSENT TO SEARCH!
