Cops Can Pull Drivers Over Who Aren’t Breaking the Law. The Supreme Court Could Change That.

Right now, cops can easily track and pull over millions of people not because they’re swerving or speeding, but because they’re driving a car registered to a person with a suspended license.

Now, the Supreme Court could soon put an end to those traffic stops to uphold drivers’ Fourth Amendment rights, which protect against unreasonable searches or seizures. It’s not always clear that the driver of the car is also the registered owner, which means people could get pulled over even if they weren’t doing anything wrong.
