A Kentucky motorist was caught while driving with a DIY hand-drawn number plate.
Millersburg Police Department posted a photo of a home-made plate found during a traffic stop on September 2.
The plate was drawn on white paper with markers and made to look like the real thing – although as officers pointed out, lacked the registration sticker.
After further investigation, it was revealed the driver of the vehicle had no insurance and was driving on a suspended licence.
The force said: “The Millersburg Police Dept. Is dedicated to keeping the roads safe for responsible drivers in Millersburg and Bourbon County.
“Pro Tip: Don’t forget to draw the registration sticker.”
The post was popular with social media users. One wrote: “I once stop[ped] a car whose owner had used wax to make the registration decal.”
