the Driver of the car turned out to be a 53-year-old Greek citizen who, in addition to the lack of a seat belt also could not produce a driver's license.
When the officers examined the car more closely, it appeared that the license plates, which sat on the car, was afmeldte.
- the number plate on the car was not his own. He explains that he found them in a trash can. We can't prove where he has them from, or they are stolen, says Jakob Christensen, press officer at east Jutland Police.
- in any case, is it illegal dealings with the lost and found to take the license plates, which is not one's own, from a trash can.
in Addition, the man was charged with non-registration of the car and the lack of compulsory insurance, why the total fine ran in the 6500 crowns.
