Possibly. Same e.g. in Geneva. When I paid a visit there, felt that the driving style was aggressive, with little tolerance for foreigners (drove a car with French reg. plate).
French plates foreign in Geneva ?!

What on earth are you doing guys! This is country vs country discussion which basically is forbidden here on this forum.

Not to mention the fact, that if you drive a lot around Europe you will note that there is no territorial exclusive rights if it comes to idiot on the road ...

... and please leave Russians alone. If there was any other country where 70% of drivers had cameras installed in their cars then I am pretty sure that YT would be full of weird car accidents compilation from that country.

I look forward to the day when higher resolution video cameras (allowing clear identification of vehicles) are routinely installed in cars and commercial drivers (commercial vehicles have logs showing who was at the wheel) can be prosecuted based on video evidence.

If I'm not blind, the telephone number has a country code 371 i.e. Latvia, also the number plate is indeed Latvian.

Wherever they are from they don't do this things in "so called" Western Europe. But once they are east of Odra river, here they go!!!

I'm honestly glad that I don't have to drive in Poland too much. Narrow roads of Scotland or Ireland are way more safe that our straight national roads

Czech lorry drivers are also good. 3 years ago on the way to prague almost pushed me into the ditch. I had to stop, because otherwise we would have suffered

Oh really?

Luckily, we live in a world of intensive AV-recording, so take a look at what you can get when running a search by the phrase "Crazy Czech Driver" on YouTube:

- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22YBR93ClDE

- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slwff4Qivrc

- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHQjxLDNAmw

etc.

I was just wondering where's that crazy Czech lorry driver on your videos...

Anyway this is nothing against Poles or someone else, I'm not saying neither that Czechs are perfect drivers - they are not, in every country you find such an idiots on the road but to be honest - Polish drivers generally are not considered to be the best... And the phrase "I heard that..." is simply not the fact.

YT is full of weird car accident compilation, most of them are from Russia, Ukraine and even Poland.

See above. The phrase read "Crazy Czech Driver", not necessarily a lorry driver.

Yeah, that was a tiny bit of trolling on my side alright. I just don't like Czech people, that's all.

Well, every country have a problem with truck drivers, but I must say that lithuanian truck drivers are the worst piece of s**t I've ever seen. They should get like 50k euro traffic ticket when they get busted, cause when they get 500euro traffic ticket for being drunk/stoned and doing this...:

No ring around Warsaw?

No A1 from Katowice to the north?

Map is not complete, they forgot about sections which most likely will be financed using the Polish Investments Programme, i.e. A1 Tuszyn-Pyrzowice and possibly A2 Warszawa-Mińsk Mazowiecki.
