New York State Police Are Cracking Down On These Violators, Is This You?
Have you ever tried to get away with something you weren't supposed to be doing? Could be anything from sharing a Netflix account without paying for it to dating two people at the same time without 2 of them knowing. They say, sooner or later, it catches up to you.
New York State Police have been cracking down on one specific group of tricksters and now are reportedly ramping up their pursuit of the use of false license plates.
If you, or someone you know, has been using a false New York State license plate, BEWARE! Troopers are on the lookout for these fake plates. The use of fake license plates are often used to avoid tolls, vehicle registration fees, evade speed and school-zone enforcement cameras, and avoid detection from law enforcement.
According to a New York State Department of Motor Vehicles press release, investigators efforts have resulted in 420 citations with 92 plate violations, 66 traffic tickets, 36 towed vehicles, 29 improper registrations, 26 plates seized, 23 uninspected vehicles, 20 unregistered vehicles and 11 fraudulent temporary registrations.
When someone uses a fake license plate, that means hardworking taxpayers and motorists are footing the bill for someone trying to cheat the system. Drivers should know that our investigators are out there working closely with other law enforcement agencies to target this issue and those who break the law can expect to be caught. - DMV Commissioner and Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee Chair Mark J.F.
