Proposed amendment to the Police Powers and Responsibilities (Motor Vehicle Impoundment) and Other Legislation Bill

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Andrew Harper
182 Albion Road
Windsor Qld 4030

Total Signatures - 3610

Sponsoring Member: Seath Holswich MP

Posting Date: 6/12/2013

Closing Date: 7/02/2014

Tabled Date: 11/02/2014

Responded By: Hon Jack Dempsey MP on 13/03/2014

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland Residents draws to the attention of the House:  the wording of the Police Powers and Responsibilities (Motor Vehicle Impoundment) and Other Legislation Bill which includes driving an illegally modified vehicle as a Type 2 hooning offence. Poorly maintained and dangerously modified vehicles pose a much more immediate threat to the community than vehicles modified by genuine enthusiasts.  Car owners should not be at risk of losing their car unless modifications are unsafe.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to:  replace "Driving an illegally modified vehicle", with "Driving an unsafe vehicle" in the Police Powers and Responsibilities (Motor Vehicle Impoundment) and Other Legislation Bill.
