I thought this was an interesting security-related story:

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/nova-scotia/story/2007/05/25/decal-car.html

quoting from the article:

The black-and-yellow sticker, which only costs a loonie, is an
invitation for police to pull over your vehicle if it's on the road
after 1 a.m.

"The problem with car theft is actually bigger than any of us
realize," said Staff Sgt. Peter MacIsaac, with Cape Breton Regional
Police.

Nearly 400 cars were stolen in the Sydney area last year, he said,
and statistics show that most disappear between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

MacIsaac said people have been calling the police station to ask
about the Combat Auto Theft (CAT) program, which he says has been a
success in the United States.

Anyone heard of this before? Is there a reason why a car theft can't simply remove or cover up these stickers?
