    Actually Environmental Inspectors have a right to stop and search your vehicle for the purposes of preventing illegal dumping etc. And I assume since they do, a few other government officials probably have the same right.

    I dont know either.... But if people see an ambulance or Fire-truck parked, people in uniforms, and blue flashing lights, they tend to stop!

    There's a book called the Rules of the Road, might be worth having a read....

    No one except the Gardai, have a legal right to stop traffic. NOT the RDF, NOT the PDF. The cops only. If I do a cash escort I can only suggest to drivers that its clear to go or not. Which we usually end up doing if you are the last man at the Nissan.

    I dunno. There's very few people who have the legal right to "stop the traffic." Some of the classes of people who can have been mentioned above. I still have my doubts about the FCA.

    Granted, anyone can "direct" or "suggest" a path for traffic, but to actually stop and delay the flow of cars requires more than green beret.

    I'd wager that Civil Defence probably have more authority to stop traffic while "working", but I can't be bothered to research it as I'm done stirring now and I'm moving on to other things.

    But they don't have to follow your directions

    Talk about a can of worms opened....

    Asnyway, re legal authority, if you're directing traffic, you don't need any. You're just politely asking / suggesting where they should go. If you're stopping them you need legal authority. This is normally achieved by acting on the instructions of a Garda.
