Driving car rules

Between October 1 and the last day of February drivers have to use day lights during the day. Front fog lights may be used only during fog or heavy rain. Rear fog lights may be used only when visibility is under 50 meters.

The vehicle must be equipped with a reflector triangle. The vehicle has to be marked with a sign indicating the country of its registration. Radar-warning systems are banned. Effective May 1 2004, the „green card" is not required upon entry by car into Poland. However, it may be used as international proof of insurance, facilitating the obtainment of compensation in the event of an accident.

Tourists travelling by car may enter Poland through designated border crossings. Polish roads are used by transit traffic from the west to the east and from the north to the south of Europe.
