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.
