So, tell me some of the reasons. "Police protocol" is not an explanation, btw.

There are many reasons. They range from observing how someone speaks to seeing if their story matches observations and information I already have.

And that includes asking questions they should not answer?

They can certainly ask you where you are going. The constitutional part is you do not have to answer the question.
Is this what Neshomamench meant?

Probably. But if you have nothing to hide, your experience will almost certainly be better if you answer politely and let the officer do his/her job.

If you are not required to answer the question, you should NOT answer the question.

It's how we keep our rights.

That's ridiculous as it applies to a simple traffic stop and the basic question being asked. But I'm obviously in the minority... so I'm out on this topic.

How you choose to handle an interaction with a police officer is your choice. Everyone has the right not to answer questions asked by a cop and should be able to do so without the opinion of others such as yourself bashing them for doing so.

One thing people need to remember is that while you are not allowed to lie to a cop, a cop can lie to you during questioning to get whatever information they need. This is why you must exercise your right to remain silent if you feel uncomfortable answering questions, even during a traffic stop.
