Part 2: Understand and Assert Your Rights During a Traffic Stop

In this video I explain your rights when interacting with the police during the context of a traffic stop. Part 3 of this short series will focus on police citizen encounters in the context of your residence.


Your rights, and the prohibition against unreasonable government searches and seizures arises from the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article I Section 11 of the Wisconsin Constitution. Below is the actual Fourth Amendment. I would encourage you to spend 30 seconds reading it as many people have never done so.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
