If the police pull me over for a traffic offense in Florida, can they search my car and arrest me?

Return to FAQ Videos


They cannot search your car unless they have probable cause to search your car, or unless you consent to the search. Therefore, when you’re pulled over, you should not consent to a search, and you should answer the questions that are required to be answered and no more, and let the police do their job, and you have a right as a citizen to not say anything beyond giving your driver’s license to the police officer and answering his questions about your identity.
