Do many of you have impound laws? 

Here if you commit a specified offence we get to impound the car for 48 hours the 1st time, 3 months the 2nd and apply to the court to have it sold or crushed the 3rd time.

Here's a related article regarding an impound last night ~ an unlicensed hoon driver has had his car impounded after being picked up doing 197km/h in an 80km/h zone.

Loss of traction (burn outs / donuts etc) 45 kph over the limit, disqualified from driving are just a few and in 2011 there's talk if you're 0.10 BAC or more then we'll snaffle the car as well.
