Spc. Tom Paszkewicz, a military police investigator with U.S. Army Garrison Baden-Wuerrtemberg Provost Marshal Office, controls traffic flow at the five points intersection located near Burger King and Patrick Henry Elementary School on Patrick Henry Village in Heidelberg, Germany Monday. Nearby, another military policeman records license plate numbers of drivers who disobey the signals of the MP. Violators receive up to four points on their licenses and repeat off enders can lose driving privileges for a year or in some instances, indefinitely. Since the school term started, military police monitor the intersection 7:45-8:30 a.m. and again 2:45-3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday to control traffic during busy periods, which is typically when school starts and ends and when garrison employees travel to work for the day.
