How do they know?

I may be in some trouble involving gas and not paying, but how do cops recognize your license plate?

I'm sure there is a list of people they are supposed to be looking for, but how do they know when they see one? Do they look over everyone's plate? Or do they have a machine or something that does it.

I don't understand the situation.

How do they know you liscence plate? They look for it. They probably have something that gives them you name and everything if they have you plate number.

He means, how do they know what to look for. Say theres 10 wanted licence plates, with 1000000000 of cars on the road, how do they pinpoint yours.

Good question, i dn

Alright good. I might have to look into it more. Hopefully the transaction is just slow.

It's a fairly minor crime. It's the sort of thing that would only get picked up if you were pulled over for something else like a roadblock or another offense like speeding etc. Is gas really so expensive you need to steal it?

I didn't steal it.


I noticed you could pay for it with your debit card at the pump, so I did. Once I was done fueling I got a reciept and I thought that was the end of it. However, the money hasn't been taken out of my account.


Maybe it just takes a while to go through.

When I buy other stuff with my debit card, it normally takes the money out in like 8 hours, but it's been over a day.

I think with debit it's supposed to be immediate but with my credit card sometimes it takes a couple days. Maybe it was free gas day.

They have cameras at the pumps that can see your plates. You run off with gas, they file report. Your plate, as well as your car make model and color are stored into the police computer database. Now say you get pulled over in a month for speeding. First they run your plates to see if the car is stolen/you are wanted for anything...in your case, running off with gas. Cop then sees your record and gives you ticket for it.

they would still have a discription of the car...and you most likely would get out of the car so they would be able to see what you look like and identify you that way...and because they know who you are...then will know what your liscense plate number is

just dont get pulled over or anything...when the cop asks for your liscense and registration and goes back to his/her car...they run everything through a computer and they can see your entire record

if your liscense number and stuff were reported and they pull you over...then it will come up on the computer ahd the officer will fine you






dont ask me how i know all of this...its a long story

If you pd at the pump with debit, it should only take a day or so, unless the that establishment is slow. Credit at the pumps take 2 to 4 days. ( I know, from doing it for yrs). All I would do is keep the receipt and if they pull you over, you'll have proof. That's your best bet.

Yeah around here the local Police have a computer in the car and on the front page while driving around is vechicle description with tag numbers for cars they are looking for, but those are for more serious things a gas and dash so they would only run your tag if you are stopped for another reason.

For some reason the Racetrac by my house usually takes 3 days for a debit charge to clear the bank, so don't spend that money just yet.

And not sure the laws in your area but I know here, now the penalty for a gas drive-off isn't a ticket but an automatic liscence revocation for 12 months.

you went through their process...if it didnt take the money out, thats their fault and not yours. As long as you've got the receipt, they can't do anything.
