Every single one of those things you mentioned has a purpose of keeping the user of the car safe. Tell me how mandating that you give your local police station a spare set of keys so they can go through your glove box any time they like is going to keep you safe?

PCSO's are usually people who wouldn't pass the police entrance exams so they sign up as PCSO to get to walk around in a uniform and push people around despite having no more actual authority than a private citizen.
