I seriously doubt anyone has ever gotten lost due to the signs being in a foreign language. If you can't read a map, you have more problems than just reading the language the sign is in.
The language isn't that much of a problem, but who do you think cares about those tiny villages, Polish or not? Nobody does.

Yeah, it's pathetic. But we're helpless. The Polish law define these rules and we can do NOTHING.

Isn't it strange to put a sign PL in Poland?

No, it's not (despite the fact that on Schengen border there shoudn't be the signs indicating a border crossing).

For example, when you are driving to Ukrainian border there are signs like
" Korczowa PL / UA " and it means that you are reaching Polish / Ukrainian border. That's why there is "PL" in a circle.

I was thinking of this photo. IMO, PL is unnecessary since you are driving in Poland, it's logical that D means PL/D border.

No, it's not. If on a sing was written "Berlin D" would it mean that the Polish-German border is in Berlin's outskirts?

Who would care about the border now anyway? Many countries don't sign borders and country codes at all, and that doesn't give any problems.

On our subforum we organised a campaign, sending mails to GDDKiA(road management) suggesting changes on the basis of border signage. We also plan to involve press in it, as one of users has a friend there. I hope it will work, now I'm waiting for the answer.
