Collision of two objects is the first one, whereas the second one is accident, in the general sense. At least thats my understanding of it.

Exactly.
http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolizja_drogowa
http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wypadek_drogowy
(you can use Google Translate)

However, today I heard in news that Police classified recent pedestrian hit by car on pedestrian crossing as "kolizja", because as policeman said abrasions and bruises are not an injury. 500 zł fine and 6 penalty points (license is lost for 24 points)...

Are there are any more motorway/expressway openings planned before the end of 2012? For example the S17 between Piaski and Lublin?

Yes last remaining noise and crash barries will be completed by the 15th Dec between Lublin-Piaski, though the National Road 7. and greenery (spring) will still take place otherwise it's a full expressway!

The A6 at Szczecin 2.2km should be open by the 14th Dec and A4 East of Rzeszow towards the Ukrainian border (15km) should be open on the 15th Dec but Poland is suffering from an early cold snap with -10 temperatures and snow in the past couple weeks so that might be delayed.

Yes but only a 15km stretch of this section could be opened by this date according to the Polish timetable (Page 1 - Hetman) - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1142261

The S61 will temporarily end at DW655 southwest of Suwałki (center of image).

Two observations;

* It's called the "airport interchange". I don't see any airport on satellite photos
* Notice the change of land-use patterns in this area. I wonder what this is.

It's a grass airfield, it's situated at Wójczyńskiego street. On your pictured its in center top section. There are plenty of such airfields as flying & gliding is popular in Poland. The latter is one of the things we are really good at.

The local government would naturally like to build a regular airport there, but this is science fiction for now.

Because Suwałki bypass is currently not ready for construction (design in progress) and there are even rumours about removing it from National Roads Construction Master Plan for 2014 - 2020 period. The traffic shall probably be diverted to the county road connecting S61/DW655 interchange and current DK8.

Are there plans to introduce exit numbering in Poland?

The general idea to do something with the mess we have currently in exit numbering and naming has reached a critical mass level. Taking into account how things are being done in our great country, I'd would say something should be announced in 2013 (but I'm an optimist).

Currently the crucial factor in this issue is to secure a reasonable solution.

Similar videos from TVN Turbo. Eight seasons, over a dozen of episodes each. Enjoy.

DK78 Jędrzejów

It's worth mentioning that the DK78 Jędrzejów northern bypass opened to traffic. It's expressway standard (GP class) but doesn't have S/A status.
