200KMPH at times! was crazy fast!!!

that biker was a nutter!!! he eventually gave up, but if he knew the area, he should have went were cars could not, small lanes or something.

Again though, credit to the police for getting him

That must have taken some good mechanical car skill to turn the pedals and steering wheel around inside that car in first vid

Road tax in Poland is included in petrol price.

so what is the silver hologram sticker in the window? just insurance?

The wee silver sticker is repeated registration number of your car. You must have on you insurance payment slip and vehicle ID while driving.

cool thanks! In Ireland we pay Vehicle Registration Tax when you buy the car. Plus Value added tax of 21%

Then you pay Road tax (varies on size of you engine (and not fuel economy but thats changing)
And you MUST pay Insurance of course
AND there is VAT on the Fuel still! :)

rip of ireland :)

Apart from payments mentioned by me above, you pay some charges when you buy a new or used car in Poland as well.

Yeah, drivers in Poland will soon feel like their counterparts in the Western Europe. Not because some tremendous increase of quality of Polish roads, but in terms of fuel price

Everyone says the roads in Poland are awful, but in these video clips, and in the photos posted from vacations or travel by forum members, I don't see anything wrong with the pavements (no potholes or crumbling asphalt). I'm confused!

that depends, which roads and where, they are doing alot of work at the moment to try and inprove the roads, but yes there are still very bad and unsafe roads all over Poland.

all the videos are awesome! and i gotta say the drivers in poland ARE crazy and my aunt was freaked out and didnt want to drive around after her first experience. they also dont wear seat belts .... and when they see a police car they freak out and pull on the belts... than they pass and flash the lights at all the cars on the other side of the road so that they know to slow down or pull on their belts on aswell as they drive by the police :) you gotta love it how nobody wants a ticket!
