And depending on your geographic location in the country, that response might get you an ASP "right up Happyland."And when a cop pulls you over and asks permission to search that is one of many reasons you politely say "NO, absolutely not. you see i'm the xx owner of this car and have no idea what you might find if you were to search hard enough. Besides that with all that crap hanging off your belt your likely to scratch and tear my interior up while on you little unfounded fishing expedition... not to mention I don't have to put up with unreasonable searches. If you have probable cause you wouldn't be asking my permission you would be hauling my butt out of the car and searching it anyway. So no you may not search my car sir." lmao
Never been pulled over and I plan on keeping it that way (yes, I'm the jerk that's only doing 5 over on the Interstate unless it's in a major merto area, then all bets are off). I completely understand what you're saying though, and I can't say that I wouldn't react the same way. My last comment was a bad attempt at humor circa Robin Williams.edit: Just out of curiosity have you ever called their bluff when they ask permission to search or do you just cave and let them search your car?
