Most drivers refuse to slow down, and even then, 70 km/h isn't a safe speed for pedestrians trying to cross the highway. If they hadn't built up their highways to cut through villages, it probably wouldn't be such an issue. My recommendation now is for them to erect foot bridges - at least a few.

    It would be better than crosswalks on their freeways.
    I'd suggest to take a look here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highways_in_Poland
    There are no crosswalks on the motorways in Poland. There can be on expressways however. It's basically quite useful to get familiar with the highway code of the country you plan to visit

    TheGreekDollmaker: it's 'Pole' (plural: 'Poles') in english. 'Polak' (plural is 'Polacy') is a Polish word.

    Cats are officially cooler, now.

    Explained in this article.

    "While it isn't super normal, it's not unheard of for cats to bark," said Nicholas Dodman, a veterinary behaviorist and professor at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. "The arrangement of the cat's larynx, trachea and diaphragm is similar enough to a dog's that if they operate the machinery in the right way, it will produce a noise that's like a bark."

    Barks, Dodman explained, result from a sudden rush of air through the air passage, and can be produced by an overly excited cat. "It's kind of a forced meow."

    The cat may have learned to make the barking noise from a dog co-pet , or a doggy neighbor — perhaps the very animal at which the cat is barking in the video. "It could be that it's imitating or 'copy-catting' a sound that it hears often. It seems to see something out the window; whether it is barking in response to a dog, we don't know," Dodman told Life's Little Mysteries.
