Cars Stopped By the Police are a Detention Under the 4th Amendment

A vehicle stopped by the police is a detention governed by the 4th Amendment. Detaining motorists, i.e., stopping a person by the police activating their red lights/siren, is a detention even if its only for a brief time under the 4th Amendment. Please consult a criminal defense lawyer to determine whether your stop was unreasonable/unlawful under the 4th Amendment. (See Berkemer v. McCarty, 468 U.S. 420 for more information).
