Poland is the third worst in the EU in terms of road safety, according to the country’s central audit office.

Safety is lower only in Romania and Bulgaria, according to the Supreme Audit Office, Poland’s top independent state audit body.
Polish motorways and dual carriageways are particularly dangerous.
According to the Supreme Audit Office, one reason is that traffic is much more intense on motorways than on smaller roads.
The office said that the number of accidents and victims on Polish motorways and dual carriageways per 1,000 km was five times higher last year than on public roads as a whole.
