(CNN) — A Louisiana driver was riding around with this license plate that hadn’t been renewed since 1997.
Louisiana drivers are supposed to renew their tags every two years.
Slidell police said when an officer recently stopped that driver for his expired tag, he told the officer he’s been busy and “totally forgot.”
For 23 years, the driver apologized and told the officer he would take care of it as soon as he got home.
There is no word whether the driver got a ticket or got off with a warning.
