They change it so often im not quite sure, generally out of the towns its 90 kmh, although the speedometer in my car is in mph.

That thing looks f**king quick, is that the CLK? Sounds nice too, I see that your steering wheel is on the "correct side", I saw some big bastard in a silver Y plate CLK a couple of weeks ago in Poznan, Wasn't you by any chance was it. Also waht does that big OFF thing mean on your obc?

so is this a sample of why "Polish" drivers have such a poor reputation? ;)

no wonder roads in PL are dangerous; everyone seems to be filming their driving instead of just driving.

Wroclaw, I'm just curious... What would be the punishment, if you were caught by the police driving 160km per hour as in the first movie?

Borrka, that's a good example of why I think you're Poles closer to Russians rather than to "Europeans"...

Thanks for the input you half breed old fart.

A Polish town

Yes its a CLK, no not me in Poznan. The big off was the sterio off.

It's not 'big off' it's 'bigos',

ha, that's the good question. Few days ago polish police stopped czech who drove 250 km/h on the road with 100 km/h speed limit. he got only 500 pln ( ~ 200 $ ) speeding ticket. isn't it ridiculous ?

It all looked fairly safe, (if not the filimng :D), 90 mph isn't really that fast considering the type of vehicle, I would put money on it that a mercedes clk would stop quicker from 90mph than a Polonez or any other badly maintained **** you see on polish roads would from 60 mph.

That looks like a great road for Poland, How did you manage to find such a smooth surface?

here's the topic from scycrapercity forum about what's new about polish motorways

It is. Officially, in Russia they have to withdraw your driver license and suspend you from driving at least for six month if you drive 60 km/h over the speed limit, but (being frankly with you) people usually give 'em a bribe (about the same to what you wrote ~200$).

Think, it's not right... to the best of my knowledge if you drive over 100 miles per hour in the US, you're likely to be imprisoned.

yeap, our latino-slavic mentality ;)
200 $ for someone who can affort a car that drives 250 km/h is nothing. i belive that many guys would pay this money to be allowed to go so fast on the regular roads.

It is a nice road for Poland I am relatively lucky to live near a road like that but I can assure you it does have its bad patches. Apparently the road in question the 8 or (E67) has clocked up the most fatalities although it is also one of the longest.

FFS - SPEED KILLS! doesnt matter what car they drive!!! People who drive fast or drink drive shouldn't be allowed on the roads again after their first offence because these bast*rds never learn!

forget about him , i think he is a yankee :(

Just in case you were misinformed the term "yankee" or "yank" is not offensive to us.

Try something like "poopy head" or "imperialist"...more OOMPH.

Funny... lecturing on Poles being racist, when his own country had segregation laws as late as 1968.

You guys focus on the past a lot. Do we have such laws now? No. Christians did this a hundred years ago...yadda yadda...how about people NOW??

In addition I have said ALL cultures are racist...Poles just more than many.

Your comprehension skills are lacking.
