Max and Laura wanted Bruno to pay. A minute later, they had to pay as well.

Max and Bruno are H/A/M, Laura is H/A/F.

Have fun (:

They=Max and Laura?
A minute as in an actual minute or an adult's minute when they say 'I'll just be a minute' and get back to you about 10 minutes later?
Sorry, pet peeve. My mom seems to think that 30 minutes is 'a few'. I think 10 is stretching it. Okay, I'm done ranting now.

They=Max and Laura? Yes, good clarification

A minute as in an actual minute or an adult's minute when they say 'I'll just be a minute' and get back to you about 10 minutes later? an actual minute, give or take

Sorry, pet peeve. My mom seems to think that 30 minutes is 'a few'. I think 10 is stretching it. Okay, I'm done ranting now. Hehe, understandable! And hello, I don't think we've met yet, have we? (:

I just noticed that in two of my active puzzles, there's a character named Laura... anyway. Time for a

***RECAP***

Max and Laura are two police officers who ask Bruno to pay a fine because he has done something wrong. Bruno pays the fine.
A minute later, Max and Laura have to pay a fine as well, but they hadn't done the same thing wrong as Bruno.

HINT: Find out more about Bruno.

Does Bruno work? Is the fine related to his job? To a hobby that he has? Was he driving when he did the thing he was fined for?

Germany, hmmm...

Are any driving laws specific to Germany relevant? Any stereotype of German drivers? Does Germany drive on the left or the right? Autobahn (?) relevant?

Was the fine Max and Laura had to pay related to their job? Did they do something wrong?
if so: was it related to collecting the fine from Bruno? were they not allowed to demand instant payment of the fine in cash? (like it is in Germany)
or was, rather, the Max's and Laura's offence not directly related to collecting the fine, but got uncovered when they asked Bruno to pay? when Bruno paid?
Was Max's and/or Laura's offence tax evasion? smuggling? something traffic-related? (like making a phone call while driving)

Something of these relevant about Bruno:

His age?
His profession? Was Bruno a professional driver? If so, was he driving an ambulance?
Personal record?(in the criminal sense)
His family?

Did Laura and Max know Bruno before applying the penalty?

Did Laura and Max commit the same fact, or were they fined for unrelated infractions?

Max and Laura are two police officers who fine Bruno for speeding. Bruno pays the fine.

A minute later, Max and Laura have to pay a fine as well, but their offence was not traffic-related. Dropping litter is somewhat OTRT. Both of them were fined for the same thing.

Bruno's job is very relevant.}

So Bruno was driving a car, but not his car, on public ground, right? And he is not a professional driver?
Was driving the car related to Bruno's job? Did he drive to his place of work? from his place of work?
Does Bruno's job usually involve driving? does he test-drive?
Was it a rented car? does it belong to Bruno's employer? was it stolen? was it a police car?

Was Bruno working (i.e. driving because it was required by his job) when he was fined?
When Bruno is driving as part of his job, does he visit particular people? (clients? customers? businesses?) particular places?
Is the main purpose of his job-related driving: to visit somebody? to collect things? to collect money? to deliver things? to take pictures? to discard garbage?
Does Bruno work in the law enforcement system? for a governmental institution? for a private company? for a bank? is he self-employed?
Is Bruno's job somehow related to cars and/or traffic (other that he is driving from time to time as part of his job)?

Max and Laura are not in their car when they pull over Bruno, but standing next to it on the road side.

Did Max and Laura have the authority (as imposed by law, for example) to fine Bruno? At the specific time? In said place?

Did Bruno have the authority to fine them? At the specific time? In said place?

Is Bruno working for the government? For the mayor? For an NGO? For a EU institution?

Are all 3 (if different answers, please specify) in their normal time on duty? (not after hours, that is)

Is anything else relevant about Bruno, besides what has been already established and his job? (tall vs short, old vs young, white vs black, etc, etc)

is Bruno working under cover?

does Bruno's vehicle carry any sort of identification? a logo? advertising?

is Bruno's job to keep an eye on people like Max and Laura and ensure that they are doing their job correctly?

are Max and Laura traffic wardens? possibly. Assume they're regular police officers

do they flag him down so that he pulls over and stops? or are they waiting at some point? this like a bus stop? but not this

do they pull him over in order to fine him? yes or do they realise they need to impose a penalty once he pulls over?

are they manning some ort of vehicle inspection point? no

are they customs officers? immigration officers? no to both

are they at a border? on a bridge? near a ferry? no to all

It's strange that nobody has asked for the LTPF list of professional fields, so to speed things up a bit, Bruno is a forest ranger. This should also tell you where they are.

Did they stop Bruno in the forest? on a forest road? Did Bruno fine them for entering the forest? for parking their car in the forest? for littering? for smoking?

Did they stop Bruno in the forest? yes on a forest road? yes Did Bruno fine them for entering the forest? for parking their car in the forest? for littering? no to these for smoking? YES!!

********SPOILER********
Laura and Bruno are two police officers on traffic duty on a road that leads through a forest. It's a slow afternoon, so they decide to have a smoke.
Along comes Bruno, our local forest ranger, in his car. He is speeding so that the two cops pull him over and fine him.

But when he sees that they're smoking, he fines them as well because smoking is forbidden - the cigarettes might start forest fires.


Thanks for playing and for your patience, and thumbs up for Sundowner's final solution.
