I was cited for “expired registration” 9-18-2-7 and “no insurance” 9-25-8-2 in Indiana after being pulled over for speeding and supposedly passing in an intersection. I have Michigan plates, license and insurance. My plates had expired a little less then a month. The police impounded my car based on my registration being expired. First off is this legal for him to do? At http://www.ai.org/legislative/ic/cod.../ar18/ch2.html I found “the bureau shall, before the vehicle is re-registered, collect the registration fee that the owner of the vehicle would have paid if the vehicle had been properly registered.” Under the specific ordinance I was cited, but nothing of impounding the car. Now I seen something in IC 9-18-2-43 about impounding, but this wasn’t listed on the ticket.
I also noticed under “Lic. Yr” he put 06. Is this supposed to be the year my plates expired or were renewed. My tags expired Nov of 07. I was pulled over in Dec. In fact I think my plates were even purchased on 07, I have to look up my records.
