The makeshift substitute was fashioned from cardboard and paint. 

Vehicle operator Amanda Schweickert, 28, was charged with possessing a forged instrument, a felony offense.

Due to other issues, she also found herself on the receiving end of a misdemeanor count of operating a vehicle with a suspended registration and three vehicle and traffic infractions.

As of Thursday afternoon, Schweickert was being held at the Erie County Holding Center. 

Her bail was set at $400. 

The Erie County Sheriff’s Department used the incident as an opportunity to remind people that, "…homemade cardboard license plates are NOT legal."
