#HaldimandOPP This is no joke! This homemade licence plate caught the eye of a Haldimand OPP officer yesterday afternoon in Caledonia. The appropriate charges were laid and the vehicle was removed from the roadway. #RoadSafety ^mg pic.twitter.com/k2kMHKLQpK

The hilariously phoney-looking cover-up featured scribbles that looked nothing like the original provincial plates.
"The appropriate charges were laid and the vehicle was removed from the roadway," an excerpt from the report reads.
However, this isn't the first time someone has failed spectacularly while trying to recreate their licence plates and one driver even used a diaper box.
