Woman Gets Arrested for Using a Cheese Wrapper as Her Car Registration

We’ve all tried to finesse the system, pulling the wool over The Man’s eyes is a fundamental human trait. Whether it’s being rather choosy with what you decide to scan at the self-serve checkout or bravely deciding that you don’t need a parking ticket because “Who checks anyway”, we as humans are conditioned to try and get free things in the most creative ways possible.

You’d think that people would have the common sense to at least be somewhat sneaky with their devilish ways, but cops in Alexandria, New Hampshire discovered that this isn’t the case when they pulled a car over for a routine traffic stop and discovered something fishy.

Upon closer inspection, the police found that they car they had pulled over appears to be covered in fake registration stickers made from cheese wrappers. I’m not entirely sure how someone connects cheese and car registration, but props for an inventive arts and crafts project.

While it’s an admirable effort, it’s surprisingly pretty illegal to drive around with cut up pieces of cheese wrappers masquerading as your registration. The woman was arrested on the spot and could face some pretty tough legal action.

“Driving an uninspected or unregistered vehicle is a violation level offence and punishable by a small set fine,” Alexandria police said in a Facebook post addressing the arrest and providing pictures of forged stickers. “The punishment for making fake stickers is a misdemeanour and punishable by a fine up to $1200. In this case, the driver could be fined up to $2,400, plus her car was towed and impounded until she properly registers it are had it properly towed from the lot.”

 The absurdity of the situation wasn’t lost on the department and they hit back with some pretty decent dad jokes.
