My problem is the car is not worth the money I have to pay to register the car. I am considering junking it. What are the options open for me since the car its only worth 500 and the registration is gonna cost me more than that. What can I tell the Judge when I do go to court since I have been cited to appear before one. The cops removed the fake plates I had at the back do they have a right to do that? If not can I take them on on that?

You can junk the car and and show proof. No one is going to make you register a car you don't own or possess any more. A judge would likely dismiss that count . . .
No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia
