Safety and advice

Frequent driver mistakes

In this part we provide a handful of rules for you, which application will allow a safe and comfortable use of the motorway.
We have based these rules on the analysis of accidents on the motorway and on a visual assessment of day-to-day drivers behaviour..
We have divided them into four groups. ‘Frequent driver mistakes’ are presented here.

 

  • do not overestimate your skills and capacities of your vehicle - many
    ‘fat wheels’ landed on barriers or in the ditch
  • do not drive ‘bumper-to-bumper’ - driving at a speed of 140 km/h we travel nearly 40 m during 1 second.
    If it is necessary to suddenly brake, this will take us approx. 5 seconds and the braking distance will
    extend to at least 150 m. Because of that keep an appropriate distance between vehicles;
    the appropriate distance is at least a half of your speed expressed in metres (140 km/h = 70 m)
  • slow down during rain - the braking distance becomes substantially longer
  • try to drive smoothly, adapting the speed to other traffic participants
  • drive on the right lane (there are no ruts on our motorway) and use the left lane to overtake
  • do not cut in on other vehicles - differences in vehicle speeds on the motorway happen to be very large.
    If you decide to overtake, look at least 2 times at the rearview mirror and minimise the overtaking time
    czas wyprzedzania
  • avoid overtaking if you drive only at a slightly higher speed than the overtaken vehicle
    (we appeal for that in particular to lorry divers)
  • do not treat the motorway as a racetrack

When you drive

In this part we provide a handful of rules for you, which application will allow a safe and comfortable use of the motorway.
We have based these rules on the analysis of accidents on the motorway and on a visual assessment of day-to-day drivers behaviour.
We have divided them into four groups. In this part the advice ‘when you drive’.

 

  • do not enter the motorway with a faulty vehicle - you will avoid many, usually costly, problems
  • if you want to stop, use car parks - stopping on the motorway
    is very dangerous and it is forbidden, after all
  • approaching a traffic jam or strongly slowing down, switch on the hazard lights
  • standing in a traffic jam leave the emergency lane and the greenery strip free
  • use the speed-change lane - smoothly join in the traffic
  • do not reverse, if you pass the place where you wanted to exit
  • look more often at rearview mirrors
  • do not trust totally the safety equipment in the vehicle
    - crash tests are carried out at a speed of 50-60 km/h
  • avoid overtaking winter maintenance vehicles in action, i.e.
    driving with a light signal on

When you stand

In this part we provide a handful of rules for you, which application will allow a safe and comfortable use of the motorway.
We have based these rules on the analysis of accidents on the motorway and on a visual assessment of day-to-day drivers behaviour.
We have divided them into four groups. Our advice, if you are forced to stop on the motorway.

 

  • only a vehicle breakdown or an accident may be the reason to stop on the emergency lane
    – switch on the hazard lights and put a warning triangle 100 m behind the vehicle,
  • notify a breakdown via the nearest SOS column or via the emergency phone 32-7627-333
    (the phone number is printed on the receipt)
  • if you participate in or witness an accident, call the emergency phone
    or 112
  • waiting for assistance, pass behind the guardrail,
  • absolutely do not stay in the damaged vehicle - this applies also to passengers
  • do not walk on the motorway

Advice related to the toll plazas

Also on toll plazas (TP) various incidents occur, including collisions.
To facilitate yourself and the others passing the TP we warmly advise using the following rules.

 

  • slow down entering the TP - the speed limit is 40 km/h
  • head towards an open toll collection lane marked with a green arrow
  • a red cross above the lane marks a closed lane
  • try to choose the lane, where the number of vehicles is smallest
  • exercise special caution when changing lanes - frequent collisions
  • approaching the toll booth ask the passenger (if possible)
    to prepare means of payment (card, cash, subscription coupon)
  • count the change or take the card, take the receipt
  • a green light allows leaving the toll collection lane, but remember
    - the speed limit of 40 km/h still applies
  • it is easiest to enter car parks on the TP from the extreme right toll collection
    lanes
  • for the customers’ safety the toll plazas are monitored
  • first lane on the left marked with >>>>>> and orange toll booth
    is designated only for users of electronic toll collection
