Police can search your car without warrant in all 50 states!

First, you refuse a search after police pull you over. Next, the police impound your car to get it off the road while they decide if/when a warrant will be issued. Then, the police conduct an "inventory" of items in the vehicle (including inside trunk, glove box, and console compartments). Anything illegal found in the "inventory" will be legally used against you, even though it was obtained without a warrant.

The fact is, refusing a search will just delay the search. It won't get you a warrant as stipulated by our defunct U.S. constitution.
