I am curious about what officers in different jurisdictions / responsibilities can or cant do when it comes to traffic violations.
Around where I work (Delta) I often see the Commercial Vehicle Inspectors pulling over commercial trucks. But I have also seen them pulling over "civilian" vehicles. Can they pull someone over for a moving violation that they witness?
In a similar vein, can transit police pull you over for similar offenses, or would they radio the local detachment with the violators info?
Last one, can an RCMP officer pull you over for traffic infractons within the City of Vancouver? What would happen if an Vancouver Officer tagged you for speeding east bound along Grandview Hwy, but you crossed Boundary (into burnaby) before he caught up to you?
I'm not asking these questions to be able to get away with anything, I'm simply curious - these are some thoughts that rattle around inside my helmet as I'm riding around.
