Personally I don't think you'll get anywhere going through the system or asking a cop, JMHO. It's not like the feds are staked out at his place waiting waiting for your to come get your plate back. Believe me if he hasn't registered the cruiser by now he ain't going to hop down to the dmv and take care of it first thing today. He'll continue to milk parking where he wants and stacking up tickets as long as he can.
Oregon they stayed with the car. That was new to me when we moved there and I thought very odd. But you can't pump your own gas either.

It was always my understanding that they "COULD" go with the car if both parties filled out a transfer of plates but in the states I've lived it was never manditory they went with the vehicle. I guess that was back when people were more honest than they are today. I don't think that's the norm in many states today. Usually most of the DMV's will give you a pro rated pay back and have done away with plate transfers since it's a PITA. I'm sure there are still more than a few antiquated states out there.

I know in Texas the plates go with the vehicle, and I think it is that way in California as well. That's why you see a lot of old 60s-era cars in Cali with the old black plates.

Call the police, explain your mistake, pay the tickets, move on with life. I doubt the time you spend trying to get out of paying them would be worth it in the end. Time=money.

Heck, if it were me and I found out the guy never registered the vehicle and was driving around on my plates I'd be a real jerk and apply for a duplicate title and go pick up the rig. If you have to pay the tickets because you technically have the vehicle registered to you, you may as well really have the vehicle.
now that is awesome!!!!!

Just because he hasn't registered it doesn't mean it's not insured. I buy and sell bikes all the time and I never register them in my name, but I do carry full coverage on them. He's prolly just waiting until January to register it unless he's got some emissions problem. The cops aren't going to do shizzle for you. Go get your plates before your Jeffersons turn to collection notices and impact your credit. You can't remedy the situation without them. If you pay for two I guarantee you'll eventually pay for three.
