Cardboard number plates can’t fool police, as a 30-year-old Benarkin North woman has learned.

Kingaroy police spotted a Holden sedan on Rogers Drive in the early hours of last Wednesday allegedly sporting a homemade cardboard registration plate.

“Inquiries not surprisingly revealed the vehicle was unregistered,” Officer-in-Charge of Kingaroy Police, Senior Sergeant Dave Tierney said.

“The woman also failed to have red P plates displayed.”

The woman will appear in Kingaroy Magistrates Court on July 6  charged with driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, displaying false plates and failing to display red P plates.

Her vehicle was also impounded and police will be seeking its forfeiture under anti-hooning legislation.
