Driver Pulled Over for Hanging an Air Freshener in His Car

2 posts in this topic

It all started when Michigan resident Richard Houghton was driving through Wisconsin, where he was pulled over by a police officer. The reason? He apparently had an air freshener hanging from his rear view mirror, and a GPS unit on his dash, which according to the police officer, were obstructing his view of the road and were thus illegal under state law. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a small amount of marijuana. Houghton was arrested and charged with 2 years of probation, and his car was seized under civil forfeiture laws.

The guy lost his car for basically nothing. What a shame. Civil forfeiture laws are becoming more heinous by the day and they need to be reigned in but that's not going to happen. It's a cash cow.
