Traffic Fines: Quicker and Higher
Drivers who exceed speed limits in cities by over 50 kph will pay fines of zl.1,000. Fines for the same traffic offense outside cities will be zl.900.

The lower house of the parliament has started work on changes in traffic regulations. Deputies from the governing Civic Platform (PO) want to improve safety on roads with speed cameras and a special road monitoring center. The cameras will only record cases of speeding over 20 kph over the limit, then photos of the speeding driver and car will be forwarded to a central computer. The system will then calculate the fine and send a ticket to the driver. The entire procedure will just take several hours.


Railroad Construction Made Easier
The government Sept. 16 adopted an amendment to the law on railroad transportation. The amendment seeks to accelerate the construction, redevelopment and modernization of rail routes of national importance. The amended law will also specify the principles of expropriation and damage paid to owners of properties which rail lines pass through.

The amendment aims to allow PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe SA (PKP PLK), which manages the national railroad infrastructure, to apply to province governors when it wants to build a new rail line of national importance. At the moment, applications have to go to province governors through the minister of infrastructure, which means the procedure takes longer.

Province governors will also notify property owners and tenants when they start assessing an application for a new rail line.
