License to escape

Irish police have solved the mystery of a Polish recidivist who clocked up 50 traffic offenses on different addresses and was never caught.

An internal police memo said that officers taking details of Polish traffic offenders had been mistakenly using "Prawo Jazdy" printed on the top right corner of the driving license, as the holder's name.

"Prawo Jazdy is actually the Polish name for driving license and not the name on the license," the police memo dated June 2007 said. "It is quite embarrassing to see the system has created Prawo Jazdy as a person with over 50 identities."
