SLIDELL, Louis. — A Louisiana driver was riding around with this license plate that hadn't been renewed since 1997.

Louisiana drivers are supposed to renew their tags every two years. When the officer asked the man why, the driver replied, "Sorry, officer. I've been busy lately and totally forgot to renew my vehicle registration. I will take care of it as soon as I get home," police said.

No word whether the driver got a ticket or got off with a warning.
