You don’t forfeit your civil liberties just because you are behind the wheel of a vehicle. In this lesson, we address what you should do when confronted by a police officer, and more importantly, what you don’t have to do. The Fourth Amendment applies to your car as well as your home, and the police cannot detain you indefinitely without charging you with a crime. And, of course, you always have the right to remain silent.
