Well, there's a line on the "'acknowledgement' of seized/surrendered driver's license/vehicle registration" form (second set of quotes around the word "acknowledgement" added by me) for my signature, but they just wrote "left under wiper blade". Which is to say they ignored their own form's requirement for my signature. Because why let that get in the way of what, effectively, seems to me to be them stealing my plates.
