Re-institute Warrant Requirement for Police to Search Motor Vehicles During Traffic Stop

This petition had 6,144 supporters


In 2015, the N.J. Supreme Court passed a decision taking away the protection of the 4th amendment in regards to traffic stops.  Previously, police needed either the motor vehicle's driver to consent or a warrant to search their vehicle.  Thanks to the recent Supreme Court decision, police now require neither.  They may search your vehicle simply based on probable cause, the lowest possible legal standard.  This decision needs to be overturned in order to restore the protection of the 4th amendment to New Jersey motorist and all motorist driving within New Jersey.
