Police catch driver with hand-drawn number plate

The plate had been drawn on a piece of paper and made to look like the real thing.

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.

Millersburg Police Officers conducted a traffic stop on 9/2/2020 after something just didn’t seem right about this…

“Pro Tip: Don’t forget to draw the registration sticker.”
