• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

Incorrect. This is the Nevada forum and in Nevada it is sixty minutes maximum with no ifs, ands, or buts. from the time of the traffic stop you are being detained, and if the officer doesn't make an arrest or release you within those sixty minutes, it is an unlawful detainment.
NRS 171.123 "A person must not be detained longer than is reasonably necessary to effect the purposes of this section, and in no event longer than 60 minutes."


Seems as if you know your case law ! ^^^

See? They can get warrants ... the 4th amendment must now be seen to require warrants before a search at least (taking the idea one tiny step in the right direction).

I love the last one. They KNOW they are breaking the law. Yeah, cops.
