    Old and new Polish cars

    FIAT  126P

    Look at my picture: it's unbelievable small car called FIAT 126p (p means Polish) produced in 70' till... 90' just in Tychy. This one is for sale, for... 100 euros, I suppose hehe.

    Be careful: there are still quite a lot of such old cars in Tychy streets. I don't know how they pass technical check ups obligatory each year.

    LUXURY CARS in Tychy?
    Except specifically Polish old cars (like Fiat 126 - the smaller car you can even imagine :-) you maybe surprised to see not many but quite a lot new, expensive and even quite luxury cars driving around Poland.

    BOOM FOR CARS?
    Since communism collapse in 1989 there are more and more rich people and private companies in Poland (and more poor people as well). It seems that some Poles can run their businesses very effectively. More: if you buy/lease a car for your company you can easily lower your income ----> you pay less taxes.

    At the beginning of 90' some people were so crazy about new cars (new quality cars that time = "western" cars) that they bought them even when they didn't have and didn't expect any cash. Hmm... they just got difficult to pay for them credits. A few years ago Poles bought as I remmeber well over 700,000 new cars! More than in much more rich Switzerland.

    Nowadays less people buy new cars and less people want to drive new and/or expensive cars. People want to buy just enough comfortable, good quality and not expensive cars.

    FOR  BRITISH  DRIVERS

    Some tips for drivers:
    1. Speed limit 60 km/h unless other marked on traffic signs (lower or higher),
    2.Road police? Better avoid these guys, they control speed using handy radars on the entries to city sometimes,
    3. Parking: no problem, in some places you must pay (to a parking-women) 1 PLN for guys in the city hall - a parking ticket is valid 1 hour in all Tychy,
    4. DUI - never,
    5. Watch out for young drivers and the old ladies!
    5. Many roundabouts,
    5. Accident? Call 997 and pray these guys to know your language!
    6. Always KEEP RIGHT! Any doubts? Look at the picture!
