    Also of note in his article:

    If you’re not at the airport, the rules are different. If you approach a VIPR checkpoint, you can make a U-turn or walk away, and there is no requirement that you allow your vehicle or your belongings to be searched. In addition, you can deny the agents permission to search you or your car by saying, “I do not consent to a search.” A law enforcement officer can’t search your car without probable cause — in other words, if he sees something suspicious. So technically, it’s possible to pass through a VIPR checkpoint and deny agents the right to search your vehicle. But you are probably better off just leaving.

    Just say no to these searches.
