What's the legality of the police searching a private vehicle? In the local rag tonight there was an article on a "blitz" where police were pulling over vehicles and searching them. I was of the view that they needed a warrant and a reasonable justification to search it. This sounded like a RBT stop where instead they were conducting searches, much like a fishing expedition, to see what could be found. I thought that this wasn't allowed. Maybe I've been wrong with this assumption. Thoughts, anyone?
