You get a speeding ticket because you "might" get in an accident
You get a DUI because you might hurt someone
You get your license taken for driving without insurance because you might damage property
You get a license plate because you might be a criminal.
It's about pre-crime, and regardless of how plausible it might be, it's against the principles of American justice, innocence until proven guilty.
