French License Plates
With the increased repression by the government of motorcycle and car owners, with increased fines and even prison terms, many are looking at ways to escape the Razzia Open link in a new window. One way, which is on the increase, is the use of fake license plates.

We mentioned in previous articles about vehicles that were caught speeding by a radar which they could never physically have accomplished. Often it's the radar that is faulty, but more and more, it's a false license plate that was used.

Already in 2010, the use of fake license plates was up 19%, some 13,574 fines went out to a fake license plate. It's no fun when you receive a fine for speeding, and you didn't even do it.

In France, companies that make license plates are required to see the vehicle registration papers before issuing a license plate, but nowadays companies see a buck as a buck, and are not going to drive away customers by insisting on the vehicle's license plate.

So all you need to do is find an equivalent motorcycle as yours, get it's license plate number, make a duplicate and put it on your bike.

But is the risk worth the effort? If you get caught, it's a €30,000 fine, and 7 years prison....
