this law won't make it past the first appeal. Totally unconstitutional.

This is (in my mind) mostly about extending the scope of seizures of private property for police profit. What do you bet the charges will be dismissed as long as he doesn't protest the seizure of his vehicle. Therefore no court case to test the constitutionality of the law.

Here is a copy of the act.
Laws, Acts, and Legislation

Here is the ACLU's comment on it before it was passed in 2012
SB 305 – Hidden Vehicle Compartment (2011-2012) | ACLU of Ohio

First they have to prove, and have a search warrant to find it if you have one. does this mean a factory installed hidden compartment is legal? what about the under seat storage on some of the newer cars, where you lift the front seat bottom to get at the storage! very unconstitutional! they are just trying to find an easier way to find the drug smugglers instead of doing it the right way!

And the supposed law states that as long as it is not used for illegal purposes it is a non-issue! and in the article there was no illegal activity involved with the hidden compartment, and no residue was found! So right there they just violated the newly written law! in the words of their law he was wrongfully taken into custody and charged! whether or not he is guilty of drug smuggling is another matter!

And what would be the "right way"?

According to what I seem to be reading in this statute, as it affects our RV's:

(4) "Motor vehicle," "commercial trailer," "trailer," "noncommercial trailer," "semitrailer," "mobile home," "manufacturer," "recreational vehicle," and "motor home" have the same meanings as in section 4501.01 of the Revised Code.

Wouldn't our members who put safes (either for money or weapons) in their RV's, be running afoul of this statute too? I know several safes can be opened electronically.

And also remember - for those of you who carry, Ohio is *decidedly* unfriendly to reciporcial privileges. You must separate magazine/ammo from weapon and store in two separate locked compartments - preferably not that hidden locked one

I don't think law abiding citizens have anything to worry about.

Cowracer (love your name btw) *so* many things going on these days are unconstitutional, but yet they continue.

No, I won't be going to a state that won't allow me to modify something that IS MINE.

The "voluntary" DNA sample taking in TX scares me too. Texas is the last state I'd expect that to happen.

One lady stated that she was told it was voluntary, but when she declined and tried to drive through they wouldn't allow it, and "herded" her into the parking area instead. Keep in mind these weren't police, but were people who had "contracted" to do this. NO authority whatsoever.

You do know there are "passive breathalizers" these days? The cop has it on his person with his "equipment", and as soon as you roll your window down it will pick up alcohol. Think that's constitutional?

And those who volunteered for the breathalyzer at that stop, guess what? on that disposable mouthpiece they got their DNA.

Yes, I'm a radical, married to a man who is even more radical, about our constitutional rights and privacy. We don't write checks, for *anything* because the information required is *none of their business*.

And I don't accept the "yeah you must have something to hide if you don't want to volunteer your DNA". No, I don't have anything to hide and everything to lose...my privacy and my constitutional rights...i.e. God *given* rights.

Hmm, just had a thought; does this law apply to non motorized vehicles? There was a thread a few weeks back about a compartment mod for a certain purpose.

(engaging filter)
