TRAFFIC OFFENCES?

In Queensland, these types of offences are governed largely by specific traffic-focused legislation

More specifically, these offences are governed by the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 (Qld) and the Regulations associated with this Act, particularly the Transport Operations (Road Use Management—Road Rules) Regulation 2009 (Qld) and the Transport Operations (Road Use Management—Driver Licensing) Regulation 2010 (Qld).
