Now my question: if you have a car safe can businesses or POLICE FORCE YOU TO OPEN IT??? Or are they stuck??? If you allow a search then they find the safe are they allowed to force you to allow access to your private safe??? Guess the into/background was too overpowering for anyone to see the highlighted question and address it... I'd really like an answer to this question! Thanks From the replies given I see that no one has any experience or training related to my question. In the past I have had more involved questions and gotten some very knowledgeable responses so I guess I'll have to close this thread and post elsewhere. thanks to all who shared their ideas.
