Highlight

A law enforcement officer's approach of a parked vehicle is not a seizure if the officer inquires of the occupant in a conversational manner, does not order the person to do something, and does not demand a response.
Warrantless breath tests are permissible as a search incident to an arrest for driving or being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.
