Using a new device called an ERAD, or Electronic Recovery and Access to Data machine, Oklahoma Highway Patrol officers can now swipe debit or prepaid cards if they suspect a driver of obtaining money contained in their bank accounts illegally.
The cops should be required to prove I'm engaging in illegal activity. According to the idiot state patrol officer in the article, he can take your money. YOU have to prove that you're NOT doing something illegal. That's insane.

Why not buy that coin 2.0 card? The card that allows you to set a password on your debit and credit cards? That way the police, even if they have the card, can't swipe the card if they don't know the password.
Also if I was about to go buy a car with my own funds and no loan, I would use my debit card to make the purchase. In fact some places only accept cashiers check for large sums of money on a purchase. And at my bank cashiers checks don't cost anything.
In my opinion carrying around anything more than 100 dollars on you is stupid. You have a card for extra security. Why wouldn't you use that security measure in your favor? I guess I should start robbing people carrying cash at car lots.
