Driver pulled over with expired 1997 license plate tells police 'I've been busy'

(Meredith) - A Louisiana police officer was in disbelief when he pulled over a driver whose license plate expired more than 20 years ago.

said the officer conducted the traffic stop on Feb. 27 after spotting the vehicle's license plate tag, which expired in September 1997.

When asked about the expired plate, the driver said: "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 北京福彩官网."

The police department had a good laugh following the incident and offered a word of advice to other drivers.

"We can’t make this stuff up!" the department wrote. "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!"
