June 16, 2018

On June 16, 1958, the United States Supreme Court, in Kent v. Dulles, ruled that
artist Rockwell Kent could not be denied a passport because of his communist
affiliations.  The right to travel is a part of the "liberty" of which a citizen cannot be
deprived without due process of law under the Fifth Amendment.


On June 16, 1
232, facing Mongol invasions (1231-1259), the Korean Kingdom of
Goryeo relocated its capital from the ancient city of Kaesong to Ganghwa Island off
the peninsula's west coast in an attempt to use the sea and newly constructed
defenses against the continuing Mongol threat.

Collins v. Virgina
The United Sates Supreme Court decided on May 29, 2018 that the automobile exception to the Fourth Amendment's search warrant
requirement does NOT permit a police officer, without a warrant, to enter private property to search a vehicle parked on that property a few
feet from a house.  The automobile exception applies only to automobiles, and not to houses.  The area immediately surrounding and
associated with a home (in this matter the back of the driveway) is within the curtilage, a part of the home itself for Fourth Amendment
purposes.  While a warrantless search of an automobile may be permissible in limited circumstances, a warrantless search of an automobile
parked within the curtilage of a home is not permissible under the Fourth Amendment.

Byrd v. United States
The United States Supreme Court decided on May 14, 2018 that the mere fact that a driver in lawful possession or control of a rental car is
not listed on the rental agreement will not defeat his or her otherwise reasonable expectation of privacy.  A person named Reed rented a car
while a person named Byrd waited outside.  Byrd was not listed on the rental agreement, but Reed gave him the keys to the rental car.  The
driver of a rental car can challenge a warrantless search of the vehicle even if the driver is not listed as an authorized driver on the rental
agreement.  Breach of the rental contract alone has no impact on the expectation of privacy.
RCW 46.61.672

Using a personal electronic device while driving

Fines now start at $136 and are doubled on a second
offense.  Committed findings are now reported to
insurance companies.  Simply holding a personal
electronic device while driving is prohibited in the statute.
RCW 46.61.100

Keep right except when passing, etc.

. . . (4) It is a traffic infraction to drive continuously in
the left lane of a multilane roadway when it impedes the
flow of traffic.
Field Sobriety Tests are Voluntary Excercises

If you are stopped and asked to submit to field sobriety
(roadside balance type) tests, you have a right to refuse to
submit to the tests.  They are completely VOLUNTARY.

In addition, blowing into a "portable breath test" (PBT)
machine on the side of the road is also VOLUNTARY and
does not serve as an alternative to an evidential breath test
at a police station.
