Louisiana driver pulled over for tags that expired in 1997

National & World

(CNN) A Louisiana driver was caught riding around with a license plate that hadn’t been renewed since 1997.

Louisiana police said when an officer recently stopped that driver for his expired tag, he told the officer he’s been busy and ‘totally forgot’.

The driver apologized and told the officer he would take care of it as soon as he got home. No word on whether the driver got a ticket or got off with a warning.

Louisiana drivers are supposed to renew their tags every two years.
