Police: Driver tried to pass off Camel cigarette box for state inspection sticker
A driver tried to get creative to avoid getting an official state inspection sticker, said Plaistow police, but they didn't get past one officer.
A Plaistow police officer stopped a car that had a suspicious-looking inspection sticker on 19 Plaistow Road around 2:20 p.m. on Valentine's Day.
The driver put a box of Camel cigarettes in the window and tried to color it to look like an inspection sticker, writing 09-19 on the front, said police in a FB post.
"Although it is creative, it is definitely not legal," said police.
The driver was issued a traffic citation.
"Please do not attempt this," said police. "Get your vehicle inspected according to the law at an official inspection station."
