Wrong plates

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS COURT -

A 24-YEAR-OLD Can­non­vale man has been hit with a fine af­ter driv­ing with dif­fer­ent num­ber plates.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred around 8.20pm on April 10.

Po­lice stopped Jay­den Wene Parata on Shute Har­bour Rd, Air­lie Beach.

They dis­cov­ered that the ve­hi­cle he was driv­ing was uninsured and un­reg­is­tered and the num­ber plates were meant for a dif­fer­ent car.

Rep­re­sent­ing him­self, Parata said he had only just bought the car and thought it was reg­is­tered but later he ad­mit­ted putting the al­ter­na­tive plates on the ve­hi­cle.

He was fined $1000 but had no con­vic­tion recorded.
