1 to do with pedestrians and vehicles moving on the roads by virtue of the regulation of such by a series of Road Traffic Acts.
2 to deal; hence many statutory references to many outlawed transactions, e.g. liquor, drug and human trafficking. Extensive powers now exist to confiscate proceeds of drug trafficking.
