DWI Search and Seizure in Denton, TX

The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution was put in place with the purpose of protecting citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. This Amendment restricts police officers from searching people and private property, or seizing any tangible items outside of what is reasonable within the context of the circumstances.

Obviously, it is in the best interests of the public to prevent drunk driving, as this endangers other lives.  And it is for this reason that officers are allowed to conduct a search, if they have probable cause, of a vehicle without a warrant, as the results of the search may be beneficial to the safety of the public.
