=== Roads ===
Even though the Polish road network has improved gigantically over the last two decades, by Western European standards, Poland has
a poorly developed infrastructure of roads ('' droga'', plural '' drogi'') and motorways ('' autostrada'', plural ''autostrady''). The vast majority of roads that form an extensive net covering all of the country are single lane. There are few main motorways, and some expressways with lower speed limits than motorways but with many of their features. However there is lots of investments at the moment as Poland will be hosting European Football Championship final tournament in 2012 . Except for the motorways, it is generally accepted to hitchhike on the side of the road in almost any suitable place. Unlike many European states, the police are generally friendly towards hitchhikers as long as they behave properly. Some of the newly-refurbished national roads have "no pedestrians" signs near major towns, but it's still uncommon. On motorways and expressways the best place to hitchhike is either a sliproad or, preferably, one of the petrol stations.
