Youe`re right!!
And I must add that polish germans will suitably drive 240, 220, 210 km/h, maybe not everybody (it could harm sb.) but most of them

so what. It's their problem and maybe the problem of their relations with the police.
And I really doubt, if those who drive 200 km/h by now, will increase their speed even more because of this change in the law.
And i'm happy to have the possibility to drive safely and legally 140 km/h.

Sorry, but I can not agree with You my friend. There is not only their problem. I very often drive on A4 from Śląsk (Silesia) to west part of Poland by A4 and what people with german plates do it`s terrible!!! Let`s me explain: I`ve been overtaking a track (my speed 130-140km/h) and suddently I`ve seen german plates car just behind me (less than half meter behand), he has been sounding the horn flashing the lights incessantly!!! Next He has missed me and I have seen behind me and him that Truck Has been overtaking another truck... what has our superb driver done??? He has overtaken both ... on right... I mean shoulder....
This is not isolated accident, they drive as I written above... 80-90% of them

When Police stop their they always excuse that in Germany driving 200km/h or more is permitted... chicken bustards...
Sorry, I`ve got carry away..

Whoa, whoa hold your horses. The bill must be signed by the President first, then it must be published in the journal of laws. Only then the sweet, nearly sub-light speed will be allowed

No, 01.05.2010. ( Even if the bill is really published this month, it will be effective next year). So don't hold your breath.

And in fact it raises the limits even 10 km/h more. Because there is no fine for <10 km/h over limit...

Easy, easy, it won't be before long, I don't know where you get these dates from.

QWhat's more, it wont change anything, cause now you'll not get fined for doing +15, in the future you'll allegedly be.

The opening of the A4 is very good news for Dutchmen going to eastern Slovakia.

Via A4; 1340km
Via Czech D1: 1465km
Via Austrian A1: 1620km

(to Presov).

You mean the A4 from Zgorzelec to Krzywowa? Over Berlin and Cottbus it's still shorter, unless you're from Limburg.

True. I hope the next job in this region will be the upgrading of the DK18 to motorway standards all the way from the border to the existing A18.
