GREAT TOPIC, one that I have had ome up in several classes. Ok, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that if an Officer makes a traffic stop, there is a bubble around the driver and that the officer can ONLY deal with the driver unless he has proable cause to speak to anyone else in the vehicle (Seat belts are GREAT for this).

You are only required to tell the officer if you are dealing with him profesionally. Is it a GOOD IDEA to let him know you, as a passanger, are armed? SURE IT IS, doesn't hurt anything and covers you just in case. This is just my 2 cents and info that we received in training as an officer. Not positive if it has changed.
