Nice try!

The Florida Highway Patrol was not amused this week by a driver's attempt to skirt the law and avoid paying their annual car registration.

The FHP in Orlando tweeted a photo Monday that showed a driver had used a Magic Marker or Sharpie to write an "8" over the "7" on the sticker that goes on the license plate.

FHP insinuated in the tweet that renewing your tag costs $70 and is probably a better option than paying $500 to spend a night in jail.
