It looks like one Ontario driver tried to get creative to avoid getting a ticket. 

On Tuesday, the Toronto Police Service (TPS) revealed that one driver was caught using a marker to alter their rear licence plate.

In a photo shared by police, it's easy to see the "21" that has been drawn onto the expiry sticker on the plate. 

The bizarre attempt to fool authorities was foiled by officers, who stopped the vehicle after noticing the suspicious plates.

Officers also discovered that the driver's front and back plates featured different numbers.

To make matters worse, police reported that neither of them were even registered to the vehicle being driven.

The driver was reportedly charged, according to Detective Constable Scott Matthews. 

Another Ontario driver was caught back in November for operating a vehicle with plates that had been expired for 30 years.
