Ever driven down the highway and seen a sign like that? You might have wondered what it means and what you should do? Today on Lex's World I wanted to discuss this scary looking warning. The reality is that pulling over cars just to search them randomly for drugs isn't legal. Its been ruled to be unconstitutional and a great example of unreasonable search. So police don't technically do them... instead some of the more overzealous departments create a little trap. This trap isn't illegal but is certainly a questionable tactic. But it only works if you panic. The main lesson of the day is: don't panic. Stay calm, and keep on driving.
