Is this true? Or it is an April Fools? Will the A8 from the A4/S8 interchange to
Wroclaw airport really be open for use on 3rd April 2011? On the website it says 30th April 2011 is the planned opening day

You are right! Europa (Europe) is not one country, we are many countries. I don't think the road signs is a real problem. We have rules how they should look like and normally we have no problems when we are going in many European countries. The differences are more the colours, the font and things like that. But sometimes they could standardize it a little bit more than they are doing. Some countries have numbers at the junctions at the motorways, some still don't have it. The systems of the junction numbers are different. In Germany, Sweden and the UK the numbers are just after each other. In Austria or Czech Republic the numbers are in kilometers, that's can be confusing sometimes. In Poland and Sweden the warning signs are yellow triangles, in Germany, the UK and France the warning signs are white triangles, but in Ireland the warning signs are diamond shaped. That's a little bit confusing too. But chance everything to one standard for all European countries? I don't know, it's maybe too expensive.

No exact date has been announced yet, I'd say it's a matter of a few weeks. On paper they have time till May, but as you've said - it seems finished, so maybe they'll speed things up. As of a few weeks ago the only thing missing were noise barriers in a couple of places.
Someone wrote it's already opened a few hours ago, but that's probably April 1st talking again

Road signs are dictated by "Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals". Intenational law has priority over national law.

You do like the money going to you though ? As far as I know Poland receives a lot more from the EU than it pays ?

Tbh though, I don't think the signs are particularly hard to understand, the Polish signs DO look a lot older than the German or dutch signs though design wise.

Yeah, we love it. We do acknowledge though that one day, once we get up to speed with you guys, we'll have to start giving back to our friends in the east and help them out, just as the west has been helping us out financially over the last decade. But to draw a straight line from that to a unified roadsign system is a huge misunderstanding of what the European Union was meant to be. Every single country has different needs, 95%+ of traffic in every country consists of local nationals going around minding their own business, why should the EU regulate every single aspect of road traffic? In Finland it's legal to have spikes on your tires and here in the south it's not. In Germany I'm allowed to drive 250km/h on the autobahn and here I'm not. In the UK you drive on the left side of the road. Should the EU put up rules regulating all of those areas, just for the sake of regulation? I believe there should be some ground rules (that's what the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic regulates), such as basic design cues when it comes to speed limit signs etc. But I believe it's an overkill to regulate every single aspect of road traffic worldwide (or Europe-wide), because every country has specific and unique characteristics, and after all the law is there to serve the citizens (drivers), not the other way round. Here we decided to use those white signs to mark populated areas, because studies have shown the drivers find it logical and are more likely to respect that, rather than the no-speeding-in-administrative-boundaries-of-a-town-rule. It seems reasonable to me, but I fully respect other opinions in that regard and when I travel to a country I've never been to before, I don't mind spending 5 minutes making sure I'm up to speed with their law.
