Last month, an observant RCMP Traffic member noticed a tinted licence plate cover on a vehicle on Highway 2 near Leduc.
Once stopped, the member used the in-car camera to zoom in on the plate to get the number. Police data bank checks told the officer that the plate was non-existent. The officer then spoke to the driver who immediately admitted to not having registration or insurance and that the plate was actually a piece of paper. Using a made-up number, the driver had printed the image on a piece of paper at home that was then placed onto an “I (Heart) My Car” vanity plate and hidden behind the tinted cover.
The initial fines issued totaled just over $2000, plus a mandatory court appearance for no insurance where, if convicted, the minimum fine is $2875.
