Legality must always fight against frauds that seek to circumvent it. In this sense, we will comment on what happened to the last driver who should turn to leaf trick in the most sophisticated version.
A British driver showed remarkable wisdom. In X, formerly known as Twitter, the Surrey RoadSafe account, when someone is stopped by the police in the county located in the southeast of the United Kingdom.
All this is due to excessive speed which is done on the A3, a three-lane motorway with a speed limit of 100 km/h.
The offense is common, but the driver’s attempt to hide the license plate of the car with a well-known action, which has yet to be perfected, is not.

What the offender did was to use the blade trick, but he did not use a magnetic plastic. What he did was use the real onesremoved from a tree, and with double-sided adhesive tape, placed strategically on the plate to avoid the action of radars.
The location attracted the attention of the police. Because of all this, the driver received two fines. One of them happened because of not respecting the speed limit and the other because the license plate of the car was partially hidden.
The famous leaf trick in our country
In our country, the trick went viral in 2022, when a leaf-shaped magnet was made to cover the license plate and not be caught by the famous speed traps that break the law.
Let’s imagine that, if the license plate cannot be read, the driver may not be penalized. It must be said that if the DGT had been able to recognize this, it was possible that the appeal would have been successful.
How does it work?
Basically, it consists of placing the magnet sheet on the plate itself to do this hiding partially and circularlyin such a way that radars are ignored.
In the case of encountering a control, what the control does is to deactivate the magnet and the plate is clearly visible.
What fines are associated with car registration?
In this sense, the Police clarified that the license plate must always be visible, otherwise you will have to face two possible penalties.
Every mistake in registration typeas well as failures that can prevent it from being read well, can be a serious violation.
The fine will be 200 euros without losing points, they are the same as those applied to cars that circulate without registration.
If the driver manipulates the plates or changes them, the fine can be up to a limit of 6,000 euros more, as well as six points less on the license.
