Traffic police out in force ahead of Poland’s weekend ban on heavy trucks

Traffic police are out in force near the border areas with Poland, in connection with road restrictions imposed in that country over the weekend. In view of commemorative ceremonies for the victims of last Saturday’s plane crash, the Polish authorities have said they will not allow trucks weighing over 12 tons to enter Polish territory. Only trucks carrying livestock and milk will be exempted from the ban. The police are expecting traffic complications as a result of long lines forming at the border.
