A PEDESTRIAN was stunned after spotting two cars with the exact same license plate on a street.
Josh Gargett called police about the bizarre game in Eastwood, Yorks, after spotting two identical gray Mercedes-Benz vehicles parked a few yards apart.
He said live in yorkshire: “Two cars parked across the street had the same license plate front and back.
“I reported this to 101. It was given priority 8 and two PCSOs were present.”
South Yorkshire Police said the cars were both registered to different number plates but one was being used for spares.
After consulting the owner of both vehicles, the force added: “Advice has been given and the fault is being rectified.”
In 2016, The Sun reported how a driver in the Dartford Tunnel was fined nearly £500 for mistaking his own personalized number plates.
Bob Long disclosed that he owned a fleet of vehicles with personalized license plates and regularly used his Jeep, license plate number ‘1 ONG’, to travel on business with the automatic dart charge.
But ANPR cameras at the Dartford Tunnel began mistaking the number plate for his seldom-used classic car, which he kept in the garage.
He owned a number of other records also related to his surname.
