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
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
.... 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!
