road 81



i really enjoyed driving on this road. quality is perfect, the only problem make many speed camera (although speed limits are more than correct, so it shouldn't be a problem).
problem is directional signalization. you simply must know everything, or to drive with GPS. as this was my first time in Poland and my GPS was broken so i used map, i ended up in center of Katowice instead of A4 direction Wrocław



why? because at Żory they sign A1, but with completely stupid destinations (they sign Łódź, but not Gliwice, which shoud imo definitely be put as main destination beside Łódź there).
in Mikołów they sign Opole and Gliwice, but almost at the end of very long left turning lane. if you were in rightmost lane as me, not way to catch left turning. ok, no problem for me, i will catch A4 in Katowice. but there you can not find signs for Wrocław. at the place where you should catch A4 turning you have this sign
finally in the center of Katowice there were some signs to A4 so i found it


they must do something with this...


my destination

I noticed that S3 Szczecin - Gorzów Wielkopolski had like 3 or 4 McDonald's restaurants.

I wonder why they chose to put Wadlew on the sign when it is just a village

Would it not have been better to put Piotrków Trb (unalski)? which is the next major town on DK12 heading south of the S8?

I wasn't aware that the S8 between Łask and Róża was going to open so soon

Well, say what you will about McDonald's, but it's cheap and vast majority of people enjoy the food there. I don't eat meat so I'm not too happy about McDonald't rest areas, but for most people that's as good as it gets. Also their joints are very flexible in terms of number of customers served, so it's very easy to run the business efficiently. Just what you need on a motorway.
