Police in the northern province of Thai Nguyen have said February that they are going to punish a colonel for driving a car with fake license plates.
The police unit of Dong Hy District, where Colonel Dam Quang Tuan is based, checked the license plates of the car he has been driving, and found that they were not official, the district police chief Nguyen Quang Son told news website VietNamNet.
Tuan, deputy head of the district's traffic police, has been asked to stop driving the Toyota Camry.
"It's unacceptable for a traffic officer to use fake license plates. We will consider an appropriate punishment," Son said.
Tuan said his mother-in-law bought him the car last month, and while waiting to register for official plates, he made one for himself.
Police from Hanoi said the series of numbers and letters on Tuan's plate are legally registered to a Mercedes Benz in the capital city of Hanoi.
