A commercial truck driver in the Peel Region of Ontario was caught by police driving with a fake license plate on April 1 which was so bad that it looks like it could have been an April fools day prank, Driving reports.
The fake plate, complete with a fake alphanumerical ID, the name "Ontario," and the old motto "Yours to discover" written in all black, while the actual license plates use blue text. The handwriting itself is also poor.
The license plate did not include an expiry sticker.
According to Peel Region's Road Safety Services, the driver was given "a truck load of tickets."
To the drivers credit, despite the poor handwriting, everything on the license was spelled correctly, which cannot be said for all people caught with a fake plate. A driver was caught in Kingston the previous week with a fake license plate which included the phrase "live [free] or die," a phrase which appears on the license plates of New Hampshire, with the word "free" missing an e.
As a trucker, however, driving with a fake license plate could prove to be a lesser worry if the driver is found to be in violation of other industry-related codes.
