CHICOPEE, Mass. (WPRI) — Massachusetts State Police say this license plate was not issued by the DMV.

Tuesday morning, authorities pulled over a vehicle on I-391 in Chicopee. Officials said the car had a cardboard license plate that appeared to have been colored in with marker.

In an apparent effort to make it look authentic, the “Spirit of America” slogan was included along the bottom of the plate.

The driver was charged with several violations including driving without a license and driving with a revoked registration.

State police said the moral of the story is that if you should not be behind the wheel — stay off the roads.
