After providing an officer with license, registration, and proof of insurance, can he/she then ask you to "step out of the car, please" maybe under the (pretense) that they "cannot hear you?" All else being equal (no alcohol/drugs involved) just a "failure to signal" stop for instance, is there reason for an officer to request this? And if I do exit my car for some reason, does that action then mean that I must submit to a search of my person? My car? I am going on a road trip of many miles and am a little concerned about asset forfeiture etc., so I would like to know my rights.
