What Are Your Rights In A Traffic Stop?

Traffic stops can involve confusing issues of legality over both reason for the stop itself and whether that stop can extend to a search of the vehicle. Armed with knowledge of the laws governing traffic stops, you will be better equipped to respond appropriately and recognize when police are attempting to execute a legal or illegal stop or search. While the information presented here should help you understand the general guidelines applied to traffic stops, it cannot be taken as a professional legal advice for your specific case.
