It wasn't him, but after seeing other videos of the same driver I can say this was not deliberate but only to better show the roadworks. Still, nothing to be proud of.

---------

As some of you might know, starting from July 1st we have electronic toll collection system for vehicles over 3,5 tonnes.

As with everything that make people pay extra money, also this system caused many trucks left motorways for local roads. I wonder how will it end, because already we had two road blocks as people do not want trucks to pass through their towns.

He's driving in the left lane most of the time for no reason whatsoever. It's an infraction under Polish law, as it is in most countries.

you mean he is driving too slow on the left lane? Road is under construction and there are speed limits after all.

He is driving in the left lane, period. It doesn't matter what the speed is - left lane is for overtaking only. Using the left lane just for cruising all the time is an infraction.

I thought ViaTOLL was for all national roads as well?

The toll rate is actually quite reasonable, approximately € 0.07 per kilometer. In Switzerland it's 10 times as high

You simply ban trucks from entering towns and start applying some expensive fines... and you'll see how fast they will start driving on motorways...

No, and that's the problem.

You have to drive as close to the right edge of the road as possible. That's the law. So if the rightmost lane is free, you shouldn't use any other.

That's theory. In practice the best lane to overtake on S8 in Warsaw is often the rightmost one...

Poles do sit in overtaking lanes too long for no reason. I see it on the A4 all the time. But Poles are all over Europe now, and they hog overtaking lanes there as well.

On that 3-lane bit of the A4 between Katowice and Krakow, I was surprised to find that even lorries hog the middle lane.

Brits intent to hog overtaking lanes as well, same with the Swiss.
