paper licence plate

A motorcyclist in Canada just got a huge fine after driving with a paper licence plate

Talk about an unexpected surprise; a Burnaby RCMP officer issued close to $1,000 in fines after pulling over a motorcyclist at a traffic stop, only to discover that the driver had a paper licence plate.

On Tuesday, Burnaby RCMP released a Tweet with pictures of the unusual (and illegal) licence plate.

"This is quite possibly the most expensive paper plate of all time," the police force said.

Burnaby RCMP impounded the motorcycle and issued a number of violation tickets that amounted to $983 in fines.

On top of the questionable licence plate, the motorcyclist was also charged for not having a driver's licence and not having insurance on the vehicle.

Moral of the story? Save the paper plates for when you're serving finger food at parties, folks.
