I’ve answered my own question there.
With that, it makes 100% sense for me not to drive around with a fake numberplate, but if I were going to give it a go, I’d definitely put a shift in making it look as real as possible.
Not like one driver in Wyndham, Australia, who decided to make his own with a couple of felt tips, paper and a laminator. What’s more, he used his first draft, which hilariously had the world “education” spelled wrong.
For context, here’s what a Victoria numberplate is supposed to look like…
Weirdly they spell Education without the G.
The mishap was shared to Facebook by Wyndham Police Service with the caption:
“Criminal Mastermind…not quite!
On Thursday 25th October 2019, Werribee divisional van members located a Holden Commodore with false registration plate’s.
We gave him an 8/10 for his colouring in skills, a 2/10 for his spelling ability and an additional charge for court.
Surely there was a better way of doing that? Why couldn’t he use a printer? The plate would have been far more believable.
Obviously I’m glad people aren’t getting away with their crimes but still, what an idiot.
