Cool photos!

About that overtaking maneuver using the paved road embankment - is this legal? 'cos atleast here,in Estonia,it ain't and it's practiced only by young punks & bad drivers.

No, it is not, but what can be seen on the pics is nothing compared to this:



That's how it would look like if Pansori was to make a movie.

I wonder what Polish forumers think about advertisements near the road? All the way through Poland I was seeing insane amounts of such advertisement boards sticked and mounted to absolutely everything (even on trees!) in any way possible. Sometimes it really looks over the top, I think

I personally hate this kind of mess. I have been to many places in Europe and nowhere have ever seen such a thing alongside the roads. So, it is definitely insane and hopefully all this will have been swept away soon.

I'm impressed by photos of poland. the only thing they should get rid off are those advertising signs all over the road.

S8 was an excellent road. It had all motorway features (reasonably long acceleration/slowing down lanes, good hard shoulder, good surface quality, no any kind of one-level intersections and all other infrastructure typical to a modern motorway) except some rather sharp turns... then again, it would also be typical to the remaining old German autobahns.

Coloring scheme of viaducts is questionalbe
If it was up to me I would leave them all natural i.e. gray concrete and nothing else.

We left 8 for 63 at Zambrow. This was the worst road we drove on during the entire trip. Although it didn't last for too long, perhaps 10 or 20km
