Name/Address can be found via Number Plate Search

Hi All,


it has come to my Attention that your car Number plates can be search on a data-based that is public - see here: https://www.viacar.ch/eindex/login.aspx?kanton=ag


This is Kanton Aargau but also Zurich allows not sure about other Kantons.


Name and full address Comes up. That means that anyone can search your plate and find out where you live. I'm not a big fan of this. Has anyone removed thier Details? I'm think of writing a letter to the STVA of Aaagau.

Did you search the Forum? This has already been covered, and yes we did it when registering the car at the STVA office. No fee was charged at Solothurn.

Some bugger does something stupid to you in traffic, you get the number and invite some of your heavy set Friends from Kosovo to go and have a chat.

You lose your number plate. Some helpful soul picks it up and drops it in the mailbox the very same day.

I'm prepared for that risk. It's trivial in comparison

Re: Name/Address can be found via Number Plate Search

I used that feature just this morning - fiancée found that another some driver had backed into another car, collided in a parking job that could only be justified if you were drunk AND nearsighted, and then left the car there, presumably to go find the other owner and discuss.

As it was still there an hour later, blocking garage access near our spot, we used that information to ask the rental agency to call up the owner and have the car moved ASAP. Very useful.

You could always follow the said car & see where the person lives, it was never an issue in 20 years.

Stay near a brothel, record the plates that park there. Take pictures if you really want.

Then, you can offer to sell those pictures/information to the car owners for a fee...

Blackmail is a criminal offence & brothels are totally legal in CH. They are pretty much everywhere in the cities so parking near one means nothing, in any case why would anyone care?

Sure, if I am being blackmailed, they will take it very seriously.
