SLIDELL, La. — Forgetting is probably not a great excuse if your license plate expired — in 1997.
“For those of you who like to ‘switch tags,’ at least give us a good challenge and don’t use a license plate that is over 20-years-old and expired back in 1997!” the Slidell Police Department wrote on Facebook.
An officer saw the plate while pulling a vehicle last week.
The driver told the officer, “Sorry, officer. I’ve been busy lately and totally forgot to renew my vehicle registration. I will take care of it as soon as I get home!”
Slidell police said it best: “We Can’t Make This Stuff Up!”
