Police can pull over a car when they know only that its owner's license is invalid, even if they don't know who's behind the wheel, the Supreme Court ruled Monday.

The court said in an 8-1 decision that unless there's reason to believe otherwise, it's common sense for an officer to think the car's owner will be driving, reports the Associated Press.

The high court reversed a Kansas Supreme Court ruling that found police violated a driver's constitutional rights when they stopped his pickup based only on information that the truck owner's license had been revoked.
