This Comment examines the justifications articulated by the Court in United States v. Ross for expanding the scope of warrantless searches under the automobile exception. The author argues that the stated rationales are not consistent with prior law and do not support the Court's decision. The author also argues that the Court's holding in Ross requires an abandonment of the expansion of warrantless searches under the search incident to arrest exception.
