=== Roads ===
Even though the Polish road network has improved gigantically over the last two decades, by Western European standards, Poland has a still quite poorly developed infrastructure of roads . The road network consists of motorways (''drogaautostrada'') i.e. A2, plural expressways (''drogidroga ekspresowa'') and with lower speed limits than motorways i.e. S6, national roads (''autostradadroga krajowa''), plural ''autostrady''). The vast majority of roads that form an extensive net covering all of the country which are mostly single lanei. There are few main motorways, e. 92 and some expressways with lower speed limits than motorways but with many of their featuresother regional roads. However At the moment there is lots of investments at in the moment as road network, especially because 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.
