The ACLU of Maryland urges a favorable report on HB 1133, which would prohibit law enforcement from basing the authority to search a motor vehicle solely on the officer obtaining the consent of the owner or occupant of the motor vehicle.  Any search of a motor vehicle conducted in violation of the bill’s provisions is unreasonable and the evidence obtained may not be introduced in a criminal proceeding.
