They'll take your car if you have the wrong plates.

Someone switch my plates.

I found out one night during random police pull-overs (searching for drunks).
They took my car with all my work equipment inside.
Result: lost time, lost money, temporary loss of freedom (couldn't drive my car, was detained).
I had to spring my car from the impound lot in time to work the next night.
Also, had to go through the court process to clean up the legal mess.

On top of that, I was told there was no process to follow-up with the wrongly displayed plates.
So, either someone else may suffer from the switch as well, and/or the perpetrator gets off clean.

Grrr.
