Is it reasonable?

Is it reasonable?

By David Joseph

Police 


Section 84F of the Road Safety Act 1986 (the Act) provides: “If a police officer believes on reasonable grounds that a motor vehicle is being, or has been used in the commission of a relevant offence, he or she may . . . (b) impound or immobilise the motor vehicle for the designated period”. Section 84C stipulates that the “designated period” is 30 days, and that a “relevant offence” means a Tier 1 or Tier 2 relevant offence and these definitions go on to list a variety of driving offences, including offences against s49 of the Act, ie, driving under the influence, but not a refusal to undergo a breath test.
