Search and Seizure
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated," according to the Fourth Amendment, "and no Warrants shall issue, except upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
This amendment protects civilians from being searched without a warrant or reasonable cause by police or other law enforcement personnel. Police, on the other hand, often search automobiles without a warrant. What circumstances allow cops to search your car without a warrant?
The answer is that there are several exceptions to the search warrant requirement that you should be aware of before getting into your car. A search and seizure that is unreasonable is a breach of your rights that should not be overlooked.
