"One example of the flyer states in large-font capital letters 'I remain silent,' 'no searches' and 'I want my lawyer.' It cites statutory law to support the driver's claimed right not to roll down the window, explaining that any ticket can be placed under the windshield wiper and advising that the driver will obey 'clearly stated lawful orders.'
