Traffic officers operate on motorways and some primary routes in England and Wales. What are they authorised to do?

A Stop and direct anyone on a motorway
Traffic officers don't have enforcement powers but are able to stop and direct people on motorways and some 'A' class roads. They operate in England and Wales and work in partnership with the police at incidents, providing a highly trained and visible service. They're recognised by an orange-and-yellow jacket and their vehicle has yellow-and-black markings.
B Stop and arrest drivers who break the law
C Repair broken-down vehicles on the motorway
D Issue fixed penalty notices
