What kind of powers does the police have on the roads and highways?

You should always protect your best interest and your privacy!

Raleigh- While driving on the roads or the state highways, be very careful. The police could pull you over if they suspect that you have committed an offense, such as driving without a license or speeding. If you are pulled over and the police officer thinks there is a high possibility of any illegal or criminal activity related to you or your vehicle, you could be detained and arrested. For example, if the officer suspects you ate driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, she could ask questions and ask you to take to tests to determined if you are intoxicated or not. In addition, this could lead to probable cause to go ahead and do a search on your car.
