The only thing you can read from this sign is that you've entered Poland.

A4 Szarów - Tarnów

The soil is not as soft in Poland as it is in the Netherlands, but 2 - 3 months seem very little to me if this motorway will open in late May.

This is what I'm talking about. Who need it? I could understand if UE regulations required from us this since they treat snails as a fish but It's just our own invention

Even more, it is the only sign you can read it from.

WTF?! How is anyone supposed to retain that info? I guess if you slow down to about 30km/h then you can actually make out what the sign is trying to communicate. Completely ridiculous, IMO.

You know, you miss the point of this sign entirely. It is not supposed to tell you speed limits, its message is:

"Welcome to Poland. If you think that this is ridiculous you don't know the first thing about this country yet.
We have also some speed limits, but no one cares about them anyway"

"Welcome to Poland. Don't get caught."

And the sign could be easily changed to 50 / 100 / 150.

It's not exactly something to be proud of, Poland's traffic safety record is one of the worst in Europe. I don't say speed is the only factor, but reckless driving sure is.

Safety is proportional to the number of kilometers of motor- and expressways. Close down motorways in the rest of Europe and - I predict - it'll be roughly the same everywhere.

The worst thing about our roads is fact, that DK's lead through many built-up areas. Even Lithuania has it better since you're able to drive from PL to LV border and barely see any towns.

Is the speed limit for a bus on the motorway only 80 km/h?

Buses with valid additional technical checkup can go up to 100km/h.

For newer coaches that meet some technical specification it's 100km/h.

http://prawo.ekologia.pl/Prawo_ochro...posazenia.html

In short: engine at least 11 kW/t (GVW), certified breaking system, testing in case of front tyre blowing up, seats with seatbelts, armrests, and higher backrests... and some minor safety enhancement.

@ChrisZwolle - you're watching this thread very closely - those "remarks" above were just "the irony through the tears". You're absolutely right - recklessness is horrible on our roads.

Is there already an opening date for A4/S19 around Rzeszów? The famous map says III/2012. That's now.
