In my experience most officers don't ask to search a vehicle at random. I personally have never asked for permission to search a vehicle if I didn't think that I could get a warrent to search it in the first place. Most of my searches were either after arrest, or becasue they had a pipe smoldering in the ashtray and a bag of weed between their legs. I have not been a LEO for 12 years now, but I really don't think that thiings have changed that much.

My vehicles are posted "No Fishing" zones.
Having said that, the last time I was pulled over was 4 years ago, and that was for expired tags - which I had the new ones in my console, just had not put them on yet.
4 years Prior to that, it was on my way home from Tech school at 23:30 as a "suspicion of DUI"...on a Wednesday night, on my motorcycle. I broke no traffic laws, I was just a better rider than the officer (not my fault he can't take a left turn @ 30 mph w/o crossing the traffic lanes - READ cutting the corner & swinging wide), who given his estimated age, I had been riding a motorcycle longer than he had been alive. 45 minuets of my time (and 3 other officers surrounding me... literally) and let go with a threat of "reckless driving" summons. That would have been a fun day in court.
Never got round to asking about anything in my bags (dresser bike). Was too PO'd that I blew a 0.0 on his breathalyzer when he knew (his gut) I was drunk.
Don't break the traffic laws and you won't get pulled over. Pretty simple.

A cop buddy of mine once said they ask broad, open questions like that just to see how you react. Your body language will tell them more than your verbal answer.

It should be a crime if an officer asks a driver "Have you been drinking?" when the officer pulls the guy over for swerving all over the road????

C'mon. No offense to the hard work of LEO friends out there, but a lot of crime solving relies of the stupidity of the criminal and the criminal's willingness to answer incriminating questions (even after they have been advised of their rights).
As for everyday Janes and Joes, they need to be aware of their rights. Don't you think some of the responsibility rests on the citizen to know his or her rights?

"Well officer, I have a hang nail on my left big toe, and I think I contacted the flu yesterday, I've been spending most the day on the toilet!" "What, you asked if there was anything you should know!"
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
