We don't know precisely... literally things update on daily basis. That's good, there is very high pressure because of Euro

I wasn't actually on the motorway section of the A2. I was about 100 km west of Warszawa driving through a small town. The police were hiding in the bushes! I was doing 81km/h in a 50km/h zone (so was everyone else!).

I don't think these were motorway police but they were still very lenient and polite.

They had a black Kia Ceed estate, seemed brand new, still didn't look much like a motorway cop car.

I don't think we need anything more than that for now though. If it's good enough to get Porsche, or any other faster car then it's alright.

No. There were two other cars that were stopped but the majority of drivers got away with it. The traffic was quite intense and literally everyone was ignoring the speed limits! That section desperately needs to be converted to a dual carriageway! 50 km/h for international traffic is very harsh.

Probably it's there because it's the place of the interchange with A18.If borders should not be signed anymore inside Schengen, I think interchanges should be, even if in this case probably very few will take A18 after coming from A4 from Germany.

That is probably because of the interchange there.
However, they should sign it like that:

but with the proper interchange icon (I mean the "X")

Signing an interchange 48 kilometers in advance is nonsense. Why not sign Boleslawiec? That's a regional town. Other countries don't sign interchanges that far in advance too, right?

Take it poetically:

krzyżować się = to cross = to intersect
krzyż = a cross
dwie drogi krzyżują się = two roads cross

So, Krzyżowa is the place where A4 and A18 cross. It is a little village but right word. Everybody in Poland know that, right?

PS. Of course it is a nonsence. It would be better: Boleslawiec, Legnica, Wroclaw, Katowice or Krakow.
