May 10 (UPI) -- The Florida Highway Patrol shared a photo of a man's crude attempt to update his vehicle registriation sticker manually using a permanent marker.
The tweet from the FHP Orlando account shows a license plate tag sticker where someone had used a permanent marker to try to change the expiration date from "02-17" to "02-18."
The tweet read:
"Renewing tag right way-$70
Night in jail-$500+
Drivers face when you ask if they think this would work... priceless."
Trooper Steve Montiero, who made the traffic stop, said he didn't actually fine the driver or file a report for the offense. He said the driver was warned not to continue using the vehicle with expired registration and was allowed to call someone else to give him a ride.
