With the help of a dictionary

Times Online reports that the identity of one of Europe's most notorious drivers has finally been pinned down.

He racked up dozens of speeding fines and parking tickets, but they could never find him. Prawo Jazdy left a trail of multiple identities across the Irish police data base -- identities that drove a bewildering variety of cars.

When the total reached fifty, the police decided to take a firm stand -- to reach an unexpected and embarrassing outcome. A traffic division official had a brainwave, consulted a dictionary, and solved the mystery -- the name the booking officers had recorded was not a name at all.
"Prawo Jazdy" means "Driving Licence" in Polish.
