CHP nabs truck-trailer combination driver for fake plates and more


The California Highway Patrol (CHP) recently discovered a slew of violations after pulling over a truck-trailer combination in Redding.

CHP-Redding said that a traffic stop was initiated on Tuesday, February 27 due to the driver “being distracted…(texting).”

“Well, one thing led to another and it was determined the truck had expired registration, false license plates, the driver was driving out of class (the combination of the truck/trailer and weight requires a Class A driver license), and the trailer was not registered (in any of the 50 states) and was also displaying false license plates. Unfortunately for this driver, both the truck and trailer were towed away,” CHP said.
