Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Were simply "patted down" by the police or strip searched?
Thank you for your follow up.
Police officers are allowed to ask motorists to step out of the vehicle when the motorist is pulled over for speeding and also the law does allow for a pat down search of the person and the law is designed for the safety of the police officers involved in a traffic or other stop of a citizen.
So, unfortunately, it would appear that the officers did not violate any law or civil rights in a similar situation.
I wish you the best of luck!
