Right, but it's my impression that the Supreme Court and/or 9th Circuit precedent in 4th Amendment cases created the Open Field doctrine/test. So as most driveways aren't fenced in, and are part of the most direct path from the public area of a street or sidewalk, to the main entrance of the house means a law enforcement officer is not engaged in a search in that area.
