The identity of Ireland's most notorious motorist has been uncovered, after Police realised they were recording Prawo Jazdy – the Polish term for driving licence – instead of the offender's name for more than 50 different Poles.
Prawo Jazdy was presumed to be one man who had somehow managed to evade the law while repeatedly speeding and clocking up parking fines across the Republic.
However, when police took a closer look, they realised that the "name" was actually Polish for driving licence.
The term had been mistaken as the name of the driver by dozens of officers.
It led police to believe that they had a serial offender on their hands who had managed to keep reoffending.
No wonder there's so many Irish jokes
