Don't know about the Swiss...

Here is a list of stuff that the Cops can take your car in Ontario at their curb-side discretion:

• Racing – well OK
• Appearing to chase another vehicle – in who's opinion? oh ya the cop
• Driving fast (a rate of speed that is a marked departure from the lawful rate) – normally called speeding
• Changing lanes in close proximity to other vehicles – OK but generally drivers in Ontario don't give way to faster traffic creating conga-lines
• Front or rear wheelies on a bike – OK
• Donuts – OK
• Spinning the tires – OK, but really? Fun police!
• Driving with a person in the trunk – note to self when kidnapping!
• Driving when not sitting in the driver's seat – donno how one does this but OK
• Speeding 50km/h over limit
• Preventing another driver from passing – I actually like this one
• Slowing down to impede others – I like this one too but the cops will never enforce
• Tailgating – really….... the cops can take your car for this?

There are some exceptions basically to do with officially sanctioned events but my favorite is:
motor vehicle owners engaged in a tour, scenic drive, treasure hunt or other similar motoring event in which the participants drive responsibly and in a manner that indicates an overall intention to comply with the provisions of the Act; or. Honest officer I was on a scenic drive I swear!
