Driver caught with license plate that expired in 1997, gives unusual reason

A Louisiana driver gave an absurd explanation when police pulled them over for an expired license plate. Police said when they pulled the driver over, 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 home”. the Slidell Police Department took to Facebook to share a photo of the license late that had expired in 1997. the state of Louisiana requires drivers to renew their plates and registrations every two years. 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”. The department’s post almost instantly went viral, receiving nearly 2,000 reactions and almost 300 comments. One quipped, “I graduated high school in ‘97 & I can assure you that I’ve had time between then & now to take care of things like this". Another wrote, “How dare they not pay the state the appropriate amount of money! Shame on them”
