its a public road and you signed your drivers license.... nuff said.
The act of driving should no more void my rights to be secure in my person and effects than walking down a public sidewalk.

By your logic, stopping people walking down the sidewalk and searching them for no reason whatsoever should be legal too, since they are on public property.

I am sorry, but no stretch of logic makes DUI or any other arbitrary "safety" road blocks legal. None whatsoever.

"nuff said" my ass.


:thumbsup: it amazes me how passive people have become...:(:|
