Χωρίς Όνομα and Prawo Jazdy 30 January 2012

I consulted Google Maps the other day for a route to Athens. It contains the surreal instruction: Take the exit toward Choris Onoma/Χωρίς Όνομα. Memories of my schooldays tell me this means “without a name”!

It reminds me of the case from 2009 in which the Irish police tried to prosecute a Pole called Prawo Jazdy for about 50 traffic offences. Prawo Jazdy is Polish for ‘driving licence’.
