Traffic Stops

Many motorists will be pulled over by a police officer at least once in their lives, perhaps at a DUI checkpoint or as the result of a speed trap. While traffic stops often are carried out for relatively minor violations such as speeding or running a red light, it's important for citizens to understand the Fourth Amendment right against unlawful search and seizure and other aspects of the law pertaining to traffic stops.
