Durham, North Carolina, police set up a roadblock on Elliott Road, a major road that runs through town and close by the Duke University campus.  Their intention is to stop every vehicle that passes through this roadblock and ask the driver to produce his or her driver’s license and vehicle registration.  State law requires drivers to carry these documents with them any time they are operating a motor vehicle.  The officers also hope to determine if any of the drivers may be transporting drugs, as there have been a number of arrests for drug use and sale in the area, particularly on the Duke University campus.See the source image

After stopping and verifying the driver’s license and registration, the police ask the drivers if they can search their vehicles.  Those drivers who give consent have their vehicles searched; those who do not give consent are detained roadside while a narcotics detection dog sniffs the detained vehicle; the sniff is usually done within five minutes.
