Airdrie issue violation ticket for fake vehicle registration validation tag

Airdrie, Alberta – On Sept. 2, 2020 at approximately 8:00 a.m., a member of the Alberta RCMP Traffic Unit in Airdrie, with a keen eye, observed a discrepancy with a licence plate of a vehicle in a parking lot at a local business.

A check of the licence plate on the police database indicated the registration for the licence plate was expired. A traffic stop was conducted and the vehicle being operated was found to also not be insured. A closer inspection of the licence plate showed that a homemade validation sticker was placed on top of the expired 2019 validation tag.
