Transport inspectors play a major role in ensuring the safety of drivers and protecting our road infrastructure and environment.
Transport inspectors have broad powers relating to intercepting and examining vehicles, and you must assist them.
You must pull over when a transport inspector indicates for you to stop.
An inspector in a patrol vehicle can also stop you by activating the patrol vehicle's magenta lights or electronic horn.
Transport inspectors will identify themselves and tell you why they have stopped you.
They may ask you for identification or your work diary or any other documents that assist them. You must allow them to examine your vehicle.
Transport inspectors can issue substantial on-the-spot fines for a range of offences. They can also report other matters for court action.
