Thanks Paul. I have a good imagination so I'll put it to work. Henry

Henry, The police used to list the violation but now they just list the chapter and section. Some sections include several possible violations. Since I can't be sure which part of the section the perp violated. I'll have to leave it ambiguous. Use your imagination like I often do.

I am sure Scotland Yard can flush out the thief.

How about listing the violation numbers so the readers can understand what happened. Thanks, this is a great presentation.
