Man held for driving fake Smart car with a paper plate

A knock-off Smart car with a fake license plate was spotted on Longteng Road in Xuhui District on Wednesday and the driver was held for investigation, local media reported today.

A policeman found the mini car suspicious as it was waiting for traffic light at a crossroad about 3:50pm on Wednesday. He stopped the car and found the license plate was actually a printed cardboard. The fake Smart is smaller than the real one and it has no exhaust pipe.

The 39-year-old car owner, surnamed Jiang, said he came from Jiangxi Province and works in a Shanghai company. He bought the car in Shandong Province.

Jiang said his car was made by an unlicensed workshop in a small town and was powered by battery. He used the car every day to send his daughter to school.

The policeman has issued him a ticket for driving an unlicensed vehicle and using a fake plate. The case is still under investigation, the report said.
