Somehow, Police Weren't Fooled by This Fake License Plate

A Massachusetts driver was caught with a homemade license plate, made from cardboard and featuring handy work with pens and colored pencils.

The cardboard plate even features the state’s motto, “The Spirit of America,” along the bottom edge, as well as “Massachusetts” at the top, a poor attempt to replicate a real license plate.

But police weren’t fooled, pulling over the driver Tuesday along I-391 in Chicopee, in the southern part of the state.

“The operator of the vehicle was charged with several violations, including having a suspended license and revoked registration,” Massachusetts State Police wrote on Facebook, sharing an image of the homemade plate. “Moral of the story, if you shouldn’t be driving, please don’t.”
