Porsche driver busted for using toothpaste to alter license plate

Toothpaste plate mod

A Chinese Porsche Boxster driver is in trouble for using toothpaste to avoid the law. The owner used the cavity-preventing goo to change the 1s on his license plates to 7s. This ended up attracting the attention of Qingdao police, who thought the 7s didn't look right.

The owner will be able to reflect on his mistake over some long walks: he was fined 2,200 yuan ($345 Cdn) and got six points taken off his licence. Since he only had six points left to give, he won't be driving for a while.

Why not change the "J" to a "U"? I feel like that would look more normal than what this particular driver did.
