A driver’s “homemade” license plate was not a suitable replacement for the real one, according to the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
One person was charged Monday with not having a proper license after an officer stopped a vehicle on the streets of Caledonia with a cardboard license plate where a real one should be.

“This is not a joke,” the officer said in a Twitter post after arresting the offender, who had written the vehicle’s registration number on a small slab with a marker pen.
“The corresponding charges were placed and the vehicle was taken off the road.”
As of July 1, a fine for not having a license plate on a vehicle in Ontario is $ 85 and another $ 140 if the license plate is not authorized for a specific car.
