Know your rights when stopped by the cops

I can't write how many times I've read about motorists being stopped for traffic violations and end up arrested for allowing cops to search your car. It's all about trickery in most cases. And with the drug war that has allowed cops to take your car and money in civil forfeiture, one needs to politely and clearly decline answering any questions. Give the cops your license and registration and don't look for trouble, as cops will have the courts on their side most of the time. 
The editorial in USA Today by Tim Lynch says it best, obey officers commands,but decline requests.
