Rhinestone motorist fails to impress police


08:31, November 16, 2012

A loving wife decorated her husband's car license plate with shining rhinestones, but it drew more than admiration ― it also attracted a fine of 200 yuan ($32) from police for intentionally altering the plate in Wuhan, Hubei province, on Wednesday.

In a recent episode of popular television show Voice of China, a contestant received a microphone decorated with rhinestones from his fiancée, which inspired the license plate decorator, a report on Wuhan Evening News said.

The woman spent four hours gluing the small pieces of rhinestone on her husband's license plate. But when the police issued a ticket to the couple for illegal parking, they also found the plate was too shiny to be recognizable in the sun. Thus an extra ticket for intentionally altering the plate was given to the man with the surname of Liu.

Liu was fined 200 yuan and lost 6 credits.
