    If you are stopped under any of these you should consider this… you are not a person and you are just travelling

    the police have no right to ask you to step out of your vehicle! Ask them why thay have stopped you so if its replied 163 4 or 5 of the road traffic act it is just to give documents, so give tham your liscence and give them your details, if they require any other documents ask them for a producer and  under the act you have seven days to produce them, this is laid out in section 20 part four of 165  and you are under no other obligation to do anything more… in fact if you tell them your name thats all you have to do it is up to them to prove you are who you are not you…you can respectfully decline to answer any other questions.

    the police have no right to grab your keys out of your vehicle if that are stopping you under 163 4 or 5

    officers have to be in uniform to enforce the RTA a plain clothed policeman has no right… under 163 pt 1 An officer must be in uniform.
