To the Asshole who stole my license plate and started running up charges on toll roads...!!!!!
Sending bad karma to the dickwad who stole my front license plate (only), and then proceeded to use it to go down toll roads where they read your license plate and send you a bill.

Because of the way we park and how we enter the vehicle, we didn't even notice the front plate was gone until a bill came in the mail. Rear plate with tags is still in place.

So I had to find the right number in this area to call the police non-emergency number, it was not easy. Then when you call you don't get a person anymore, just a series of prompts that sound nothing like what you want. Finally figured it out, waited 12 minutes on hold to speak to a police officer just to make a report. This makes me wonder just how much other crime must be going on that I call the police non-emergency line but the hold time is 12+ minutes.

Report the stole plate, get a report #, now I call the DMV. That's an HOUR on hold. To be told the following -

1) Request new plates from the State because local offices are busy due to covid. Estimated time to receive new plates, 3 weeks.

2) Schedule an appointment. Estimated backlog on appointments, 4 weeks, due to covid.

3) Come in at 6:30am to a specific DMV, get a ticket number, and be told when to report back to the DMV to further wait and maybe (MAYBE) be waited upon.


Then I have to call the Toll Express people. Wait time, less than 8 minutes, not too bad. This lady tells me there's basically nothing that can be done other than a note in their system, until I file a copy of the police report with them. She did give me some interesting info though. She confirmed a black sedan had stolen the plates to our midsize SUV. That the plates were spotted on the back (but were stolen from the front of our vehicle), and that the plates had tags (which were not stolen from us and not on the front license plate, so they must've stole those too).


Total cost so far, $4.30. But until I get them the police report, it's just going to keep accumulating. However at least if they are involved in some kind of crime they won't be knocking on our door.


So now I have to file for the police report, just to send to the DMV and Toll Express folks. I mean, this is bureaucracy at it's finest, and by that I mean at it's lamest. Just around and around I go, waiting on hold, trying to talk to a person, trying to get a simple matter of my stolen license plate resolved.


And I have to pay for the replacement plates. So we're talking multiple hours of STRESS, and Time, and so far maybe up to $20, just to get replacement plates.






But the thing that pisses me off most, and this may seem stupid but hey I'm willing to admit it. For the first time ever, my random plates, well, I actually kind of liked them. No customization, but I really like the letters and numbers. I'm sure the replacements will suck and won't be near as meaningful or easy to remember.








So.... FUCK YOU YOU ASSHOLE WHO STOLE MY LICENSE PLATE AND STOLE TAGS FROM SOMEONE ELSE TO GET BY FOR FREE ON THE TOLL ROADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!​!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!​!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



ahhhhhh, I feel better now. Thanks for letting me vent GLP.

It seems to be a completely free-crime. Meaning you can commit it and nobody gives a damn. That's the impression that I get.

The problem is, with police overloaded, criminals on the loose, DMV only taking appointments, governmental agencies not communicating with one another, that I will get no actual justice, for what should really be considered a serious threat.

If someone steals your license plates, who knows what kind of crimes they might be off to commit, leaving you on the hook!


Finally, there are some harder to access license plate screws you can put in, you can't just use a phillips head screwdriver to remove them. I will be buying them and I suggest if you don't want your plates stolen and used in a crime that you buy them as well.

I started this thread, Whether it's a felony or not, I really hope they find the asshole who stole my plates and prosecute them. I fail to see how this thread makes me a jackass.

My point was that it seems you can commit these types of crimes and the police don't seem to care. They don't even want to come out to take a report from me, it was all completely over the phone. I don't think they will find the person who stole my plates. And that's not my fault.

Should be cameras that take the picture of your plate correct? So most likely the camera should also show the vehicle they are attached to. Som ting wong?

Yes I said this in my first post. The lady agreed that the car was not mine, but could not act without a police report. Unfortunately because it was at night, the camera did not capture a picture of the person. So if you are going to steal someones license plates and use them to run up $ on toll roads, make sure to do it at night. That is the lesson I have learned, what a great lesson for society to be teaching. This system is beyond broke.

Cameras are lit up like a christmas tree, sounds like something is off with your story lad. Either way looks like your shit out of luck. Cheers.

Not sure what you mean about cameras lit up like a Christmas tree. The lady I talked to said couldn't make out anyone in the car that stole my plates, but what could I do even if they could? Nothing. That's right, you just gotta take it and deal with it. I will never get reimbursed for the time and money lost. And the fugitives are probably onto the next set of Stolen plates.
