A man’s surprising approach to faking a licence plate has gone viral after he was pulled over by police when they noticed something wrong with his number plate.
The man was pulled over in Millersburg in the US state of Ohio on September 2.
“Something just didn’t seem right about this particular licence plate,” a Millersburg Police wrote in a statement on Facebook.
It turns out - the man’s number plate had been completely drawn on and was fake.
“After further investigation it was determined that the driver of the vehicle had no insurance and was driving on a suspended licence,” police said.
“Pro Tip: Don’t forget to draw the registration sticker.”
It’s not known what penalty the motorist faced after the incident.
