Woman's Hand Drawn License Plate Fails to Deceive Police

(Photo: Massachusetts State Police)

A woman from Springfield, Massachusetts had had her license plates revoked. Normally, this would prevent a person from driving a car on the road. But this woman had a cunning plan: she would draw a license plate on cardboard using colored pencils. The police would never notice the difference.

Unfortunately for her, one eagle-eyed state trooper did spot the unusual plate while patrolling Interstate 391. He pulled her over and inspected the plate. He determined that it was a counterfeit.

The woman was charged with, among other violations, driving with a revoked registration and without a driving license.

In the UK we have a splendidly sensible rule. You have to present your vehicle documents to get a new licence plate.
Great - so when you're 400 miles from home and hit a fox, leaving your plate in tiny bits (and the fox in on large but limp bit) you're utterly stuffed. You get in trouble for not having a front plate, but can't replace it until you get home.
This is supposed to reduce car crime - wheras what it actually does is make life bloody awkward for law abiding people, but the black-hats...simple, they order theirs online from Ireland. Next day delivery.
