Both husband and wife accumulated a total of ten hefty fines over the course of two years, Spanish news agency Europa Press reported on Tuesday.
In a bid to escape payment, they told Catalonia's traffic agency it was the husband’s mother who was responsible for the reckless driving in both their vehicles.
But when authorities looked the woman up, they realized she had passed away prior to the fines being given.
The couple have had to pay the full amount of the fines and have also lost points off their driving license.
