A: "The order must require the impoundment of the registration plates of the motor vehicle involved in the plate impoundment violation and all motor vehicles owned by, registered, or leased in the name of the violator, including motor vehicles registered jointly or leased in the name of the violator and another."
A: Although the license plate impoundment order applies to your vehicle because he was driving it at the time of the incident, there is a process that you can appeal to the Department of Public Safety for administrative review to potentially have your plates restored.
