As well as joking references to the events, fans of the TV show were quick to point out Simpsons-related mistakes with the presented ID.
Among the errors picked up included the listing of the home address as being on Springfield Way, rather than the show’s used Evergreen Terrace, and the character’s birthday as being in August 1963, rather than May 1956.
According to the Thames Valley Police, the driver was reported for both offences and his car was seized.
