Many people are confused about what powers and responsibilities the Queensland police possess. Although the police do have a wide range of powers, they are nevertheless restricted, meaning that they cannot do whatever they want. For this reason, it is important that you know what your rights are.
In relation to traffic offences, two of the most common powers that are exercised by the police are the power to arrest and the power to search people and vehicles.
