Is it true speed limits are increased in Poland?

Unfortunately not. Constitutional Tribunal overruled it (details in Polish). Sloppy lawmaking by our dear government.

Belgium is a Polish colony.

Never heard of "stock photos"? They cost very little (ce.g. 20€) in comparison to sending a dude onto the highway (+ticket for him/her for standing in the wrong place

But the points to which the Constitutional Court had doubts are about fining people for speeding with limited right to appeal. The speed limit 140 (why not 150 as it was originally?) was not questioned, hence it may still pass another way.

I don't believe there isn't a cheap stockphoto available of a Polish highway, so the question remains...

I don't think they were intersted in where this photo came from. For "normal" people all highways look the same

This is definitely a Dutch autosnelweg.
But I want to know how you could tell that it is near Utrecht?

There is no excuse for this since there are plenty of good pictures of our own roads.

Yes, it is still there. I complained about this some weeks ago and even sent them a few alternative pictures. But the built-in jobsworth lethargy within GDDKiA is much stronger than common sense and the desire to excel - you know the kind of attitude: 'Dude, whatever you want, the answer is always no'.

This is one future carriageway that will have 5 lanes and 2 shoulders. The other carriageway will be constructed to the left. It's easy to tell, this is the largest road project in the Netherlands. The noise barrier on the left also gives it away, we don't have such noise barriers a lot.

I can recognize a NL-motorway-location on a picture quite easily most of the times

Apart from the fact that I drive this road quite often

Besides the fact nobody has ever heard of these villages, they also indicate a fairly long section. Where are these pics exactly, at the Świerklany / Żory exit?
