A 47-year-old man was fined nearly $1,000 for multiple driving infractions, including displaying a licence plate that didn’t even belong to his vehicle.
Oak Bay Police Department says an officer pulled over a motorist driving without a front licence plate in the 3300-block of University Woods, near Foul Bay Road, at around 7:45 p.m. on March 18.
Police say the officer discovered that the licence plate displayed on the vehicle was actually registered to another vehicle.
It turns out, the driver of the vehicle, a 47-year-old man, also didn’t have insurance.
In the end, he was hit with a $925 fine for driving without insurance, driving without a license plate, driving with the wrong license plate and driving without a front plate.
