checking plates?

ok so last night i got pulled over driving my paerents company truck that i was going to use today to help my friend move. and the reason i was pulled over was they ran the plates on it and they came back as some 75 year old womens ford wagon. so seeing is how they came back as a differant car they jump to the fact that oh hey he might have stolen this truck which is a great way to start with the whole getting pulled over routine tell you what. after going through the whole spiel of how its my parents company and the truck is one of there fleet trucks and they ran it and it all came back good the cop then came after me for not knowing that they were worng and was like well if you dont know why there the wrong ones then im going to have to give you a ticket. he didnt seem to care that i dont drive the truck very offten and i would really have no way of knowing if they were wrong or right. so at the end of all of it they took the plates off the truck gave me a 46$ ticket for worngfull use of plates and said if im luscky i wont get pulled over again driving back home with no plates. so moral of the story i guess is that if someone jacks your sh*t for what ever reason or the dmv messes up you get the fine for it AWESOME!

grammar is your friend.

seems rather strange, they took your plates??? didn't you have the registration that matched the plates in the car???

and you are pretty lucky, my brother-in-law got to go to jail for the evening for a very similar reason.

(really?! This guy is just tryin' to share a story, and you're gonna critisize him right off the bat about his "grammer"?! LOL! Not that mine's any better.) That's a sh!tty story man, sorry to hear that. Cops obviously have their own agenda, no matter what the "law" is. I can't believe they actually gave you a ticket!

If it doesn't match then yes they can take your plates and even impound your vehicle if they like. If its not your fault go to the dmv and get it straightened out and then take all the proper paper work to court. Police have the right to run any plates they want because guess what they are not yours, they belong to the DMV. Look at it like your renting them.....If you have any legal questions Pm me.....
