Meet the guy who racked up over TWELVE THOUSAND dollars in parking tickets…

Well, not him personally, but Joseph Tartaro is now regretting the vanity license plate he chose in 2016.



That’s right. He chose to put the word “null” on his plate. A joke he claimed was to be paired with his wife’s car when she got “void” on hers. “The idea was I’d get VOID for my wife’s car, so our driveway would be NULL and VOID,”

Yeah. the only problem with this is when a car is ticketed in the state of California, they enter a license plate. If no plate is entered? Well. You guessed it. “NULL”

So $12,049 of traffic fines in one year were sent to his home address. It doesn’t end there! In fact, even though he no longer uses the plate, he’s still racking up fines which he has to contest in court.  I wonder next time he gets a plate if he might try something a little different.



In the meantime, tickets are still arriving DAILY. This year he’s already racked up over $6000.00 and will not be able to register his car until they’re cleared.  Good luck, man.
