    Attention all drug dealers. If you wear your seat belt you just might stay out of jail. Way to go KSP.

    What business did this trooper have searching this mans car ? Doesn't the fourth amendment protect people from such actions ? I can see this occuring only if the motorist gave permission to the trooper to search his car.If he did in fact give the trooper permission,he is truly a real idiot.
