NORTH PLAINS, Ore. — Give this driver some points for originality.
Washington County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jesse Baker snapped photographs of the do-it-yourself tag. It could be classified as a vanity tag, since it spells out the phrase, “DMV Closed.” The expiration date of 12/21 is also written on the plate.
“While the driver got some points for creativity, please DON’T do this to your car,” the Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook.
Under Gov. Kate Brown’s “Stay Home, Save Lives” executive order, only six Oregon DMV offices are open -- and only by appointment, KATU reported.
A spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office said it is permissable to leave an expired plate on a vehicle until the DMV reopens, the television station reported.
