From the time they are born, most people in the United States are taught to respect authority. As a result, many people in Nebraska may not know how to react to a request from a police officer, for example, to search their vehicle.

Additionally, another man was arrested following an unrelated traffic stop on a different part of the interstate.

If they only have suspicions and no real evidence to support them, there is often little they can do as a result of protections provided by the United States Constitution preventing unreasonable searches and seizures.

If asked, every single person in Nebraska and across the country would likely admit to understanding the importance of certain traffic laws, such as stopping at a stop sign or obeying the speed limit.

Despite not following traffic laws, these acts are not typically events that lead to an arrest. Unfortunately, such was not the case of a traffic stop that recently led to the arrest of four people on drug charges.
