How fast were you going that you got towed? You are likely facing worse charges than simple speeding.

Honestly though it just sounds like a storage code.

probably a secret tracking identifier that they will never acknowledge and will deny when questioned, so the next time they see you they know you've been busted before.

Call the police and/or the impound yard and ask what it is.

It may (?) also be something that doesn't allow the license plate to be covered with the anti-camera film that is often advertised, for resistance to red-light and speed-cameras.

Are you certain it wasn't there before?

I ask because our license plates (Washington State) have a small, round hologram on them, towards the middle. I believe it says something like WA and a number. It's very subtle and can be difficult to spot unless the light hits it just right and you are looking at it from the right angle.

Found a picture online:

If its a sticker that you ARE 100% SURE was not on there before this whole sordid affair, take it off. Razor blades and goo gone will get it off with no fuss.

I don't think it is a sticker since he said its holographic. I'm also curious on how fast you were going lol

I don't think cops write on your plates. I would say it was the impound yard for identification purposes? I would definitively call the yard to ask.

Those things are part of Texas plates, and can be seen in daylight from certain angles. I think it works like a hologram on bills or credit cards, making them difficult to counterfeit.
