Today, May 16th, the guards of the Motorway Police Station and the road traffic from Gliwice and Katowice carry out “safe highway” operations in conjunction with the ITD.

The joint efforts of the police and road traffic inspection officers are aimed at improving safety on the country’s longest highway. Last year, in the Silesian section of the A4 alone, there were 19 road accidents in which 3 people were killed and 30 were injured. Since the beginning of this year, we have already had 2 people killed and 11 injured in 10 accidents.

This distance, expressed in meters, is defined as less than half the number of hours expressed in kilometers per hour representing the speed of the driver’s vehicle. I.e. driving the highway at 140 speeds Km / h, There should be a distance of at least 70 meters between the vehicle passing in front of him on the same lane. For this offense, the fee is PLN 300 to 500.
