You gotta be a yank!!! Here we go again, talking in superlatives about Poland. Tell us where this biggest roundabout in Europe is.

Poles have no idea about lane discipline on roundabouts

True question....

What are the finer points that seem to be missed?

You gotta be a Brit!!! Hey, aren't you from that part of Britain where people like to pretend that they aren't the backwoods of the island?

Staying in the inner or outer lane depending on your chosen exit, not finding the "racing line" that involves clipping the inner verge and then careering across both lanes half a second later.

TVN Turbo has given many Poles ideas of driving skills beyond their station ;)

Well a roundabout is desgined to haeve 2 lanes, one for going left and straight on, and one for going anything past straight on. Poles dont understand this notion and also signalling on r'bouts here is abysmal

Obviously you never go left, just stating a pint that theres absolutely no lane discipline here.

Merged: Traffic on S8 bridge in Warsaw

Due to major reconstruction work on Warsaw's section of S8, what are the current traffic conditions (and the outlook for the next few weeks) on the bridge across Wisla and adjacent areas? Should I factor in a lot of extra time?

Depends on the time of day and the day you plan on being here. At nine o'clock on a Tuesday evening it'll be no problem; at five o'clock on a Friday afternoon, it'll take an extra two or three hours.
