I read that depending on the infraction, the police have screw drivers and take your plates. I also read getting them back requires a pile of documents and paperwork. Could this possibly be true? Whi does such a thing?

Why wouldn't they just put a summons on the windshield or tow the car? You pay the fine, show proof of ownership and done.
