Poland is one of the Europe's leading nations in road fatalities.

The speed limit here is generally 50 km/hr in cities 60km/hr between 11p.m. to 5 a.m.

90km/hr outside urban areas and 120 km/hr on dual carriageways and 140km/hr on motorways.

All cars must have their headlights switched on at all times and carry a red warning triangle, first 'kid, replacement bulbs , a national identity sticker and proper registration and insurance documents.

Poland has also strict drunk-driving laws 0.2 % is the maximum blood/alcohol limit , so you have to forget about having even a single beer.

In the past roads were empty now traffic jams is a normal situation. Currently each Polish family has more than one car. Since we have joine to EU more and more cars are driving on our roads.

The most fashionable car and popular on in the 1970 and 1980s was Fiat 125. Now is a history and fun for younger generation.

Fiat 126 p our national pride... in 20 th century



I have travelled with my parents around Europe. What a funny situation  was.?

Now I have this model of car is definitely much better.

  1. That is very interesting about your speed in Poland.
    Here on the Island of Tasmania, Australia we travel 110km on the highway, 50 km in built up areas in the towns and cities. On the outer parts of some areas we travel only 80 km, there are signs up.

    Alcohol law is 0.8...

  3. Cars are a scourge of modern cities. Public transport must be very good to compete.

    Those old Fiats weren't very good cars. The new ones are much better.

  4. Your speed limits are very fast. In my state (Minnesota, USA) the fastest is 55-70 mph. You have a very nice car. Mine is old because I spend all my money on travel.
