A driver received $ 1,829 in fines after being caught behind the wheel with ‘rude’ license plates.
The 33-year-old was arrested on Friday for random breath tests in Marayong, western Sydney, when police found his license plates were made of paper and plastic.
The man also drove without a driver’s license and his Holden Astra was not registered since August last year.

“The plates were roughly made paper plates, sealed in plastic and mounted on cardboard backs,” said NSW Police.
The 33-year-old was hit with several offenses, including driving an unregistered vehicle, which is a fine of $ 686.
He was also fined $ 686 for driving an uninsured vehicle and $ 457 for having a misleading license plate – and losing three penalty points.
The driver confessed that he had made the fake plates after his registration had expired.
The license plates of the car have been seized by the police and the driver must face the Blacktown Local Court after allegedly driving with a driver’s license denied by the RMS.
