A fake car number plate could look like this…

DRPS Traffic Services yesterday displayed a car number plate (above) that it said was fake.

These fake plates were observed by an officer under tinted plate covers on a car travelling through the Town of Whitby, said a police tweet.

“Stop resulted in serious charges including no insurance, suspended licence, and more,” it said adding that the driver’s car was impounded for 45 day and faced a court date for this one.

In Scugog, a truck driver was penalized for ignoring an emergency vehicle, DRPS Traffic Services said.

It said Durham Paramedics were travelling with lights and sirens on Highway 7/12.

The driver of the cube truck [below] seemed totally unaware. End result was a traffic stop and charges laid.

Please be aware of your surroundings, it urged drivers.

DRPS Traffic Services said another motorist was charged for driving at twice the speed limit.

Scugog Line 6 which along this stretch [below] is a posted 60kmh limit.

The driver was doing 119kmh. Further, it was found that the driver was no longer licenced. Appropriate charges were laid.

DRPS Traffic Services also conducted a successful Commercial Motor Vehicle blitz in Scugog with DRPS North Division and Ontario Transport.

A total of 18 inspections resulted in five charges and two trucks taken out of service. In addition, police laid over nine moving violation infractions. A great team effort.
