You are driving back home after a long business trip.
You're looking forward to returning because you have plans to meet with family and friends, some you whom you haven't seen in a long time, when you get back early in the evening. You've made arrangements to meet everyone at a very popular local restaurant at several weeks ago and don't want to miss your reservation you put a lot of work into getting.
This trip you've made several times before and are familiar with the route. It is a clear and sunny day. You're not speeding, driving erratically, or doing anything that would, in any way, draw any attention whatsoever to your vehicle.
While you are still several hours away from your home, you see a sign on the side of the road:
You think to yourself; I must have just recently missed something very serious on the news for them to be stopping everyone.
After waiting for what seems like hours in a long line of vehicles leading up to the checkpoint, you finally approach an officer. You ask them what happened. They simply respond by saying, "License, registration and proof of insurance, please." You pull it out of your wallet, hand it to them. The officer asks how long you were driving, where you are coming from, where you are going. After this, they take your papers with them and walk away. While this is happening, you notice a number of other officers are walking around your vehicle, looking in your windows at the contents on the back seat, scrutinizing your license plate, VIN plate and examining other areas around your vehicle.
The officer returns and asks you to exit your vehicle.
Anxiety begins to set in when you get out and they direct you away from your vehicle.
When you are walking away, you notice the same officers around your vehicle begin to open the hood, doors and trunk and begin to do a more thorough search for something.
What it is, you do not know.
The officer you are with asks you several questions until they see the other officers around your vehicle motioning to come back to your vehicle. You are asked to remain where you are while they walk away. Not very far from where you are standing, you see them begin to converse among themselves, and flipping through clipboards while feverously writing things down.
You start to ask yourself: Are they looking for me?
