FLORIDA (FOX 35) – Now you see it, now you don’t!
A gutsy driver was pulled over after trying to block his plate while going through a toll plaza, on Wednesday. He used a device that rolls a black sheet across his license plate with the push of a button. It even had the Florida Highway Patrol doing a double-take.
“We’ve seen people hang out the back of cars to put their hand over it, we’ve seen motorcycles take different routes through the express lanes to avoid the camera, people intentionally cover their tags, semi trucks block their tags,” says Sgt. Kim Montes with the FHP.
Obviously, if the toll camera can’t see your tag, the state can’t send you the bill. Troopers say Joshua Concepcion West could’ve gotten away with it, if he hadn’t used the device while driving right in front of a trooper, who busted him.
