Criminal Defense Attorney Preston Edwards explains how your Constitutional rights apply to traffic stops. You should always be polite and respectful to law enforcement, however, you shouldn’t say anything incriminating about yourself, and you do not have to give your consent to a search of your vehicle. If you have been charged with a traffic violation or have a more serious criminal charge, give one of our Criminal Defense Attorneys a call. You have the right to the best defense possible, so always ask for an attorney!
