Vehicle Impoundments

Vehicle Impoundments

If your vehicle has been impounded, this can have a potentially serious impact on your ability to earn a living and your ability to transport and look after your family. Police have the right to immobilise or impound your vehicle if you are charged with certain traffic related offences.

Your vehicle may be taken into police possession, or have the plates removed so you can no longer drive the vehicle legally.

The period in which your vehicle is impounded or immobilised will be specified on a notice that police must provide to you as soon as practicable after your vehicle is impounded or immobilised.

There are a range of offences that provide police with the power to impound vehicles, including but not limited to:

  • Failing to stop motor vehicle (evade police); and
  • Speeding, racing or doing burnouts
  • Dangerous operation of motor vehicle
  • Driving without due care and attention
  • Driving an unregistered vehicle;
  • Unlicensed driving;
  • Driving under the influence offences;
  • Failure to provide specimen of breath, blood or saliva,

and others.
