Irish police chasing a Polish driver who had apparently committed more then 50 motoring offences have discovered the embarrassing truth.
Officers had been puzzled how the mysterious ‘Prawo Jazdy’ had always produced his documents – but with a different address each time.
However, they have now discovered that ‘Prawo Jazdy’ is Polish for driving licence, reports Metro.
An internal Garda memo, reported in Irish papers, said officers taking details of Polish traffic offenders had been mistakenly using ‘Prawo Jazdy’, printed in the top right corner of the driving licence, as the holder’s name.
“Prawo Jazdy is actually the Polish for driving licence and not the first and surname on the licence,” the police memo said.
“It is quite embarrassing to see the system has created Prawo Jazdy as a person with over 50 identities.”
A Garda spokesman declined to comment on the reports.
