Really though, Poland is known for dangerous roads and a high number of traffic accidents compared to their European counterparts.

We have gotten used to seeing large black signs on certain roads tallying the number of deaths from accidents that occurred there. It probably doesn’t help that there are not many established highways and roads can be in poor condition.

So, if you chose to drive in Poland, be safe and practice your defensive driving skills!
