What is a Reasonable Request?

You must follow reasonable requests given by police.

Complying with Reasonable Directions

If you’re stopped by the Queensland Police, you must comply with any reasonable request they make of you.

For example, if you are stopped in your car for a random breath test, you must complete it. If you are asked to provide identification, you must do so.

If you fail to comply with a reasonable request from a police officer, you could be charged. It’s a good idea, then, to follow reasonable police instructions, even if you are distressed, anxious, or concerned about doing so. If you are charged with an offence, it can be helpful to gain legal assistance at an early stage.
