The holiday and barbecue season has been officially opened. The particularly long ‘Bank Holiday weekend’ was conducive to travelling and Poles took to the spring holidays en masse. This became visible at the motorway toll collection gates. Friday, 27 April, saw the all-time record on the Gliwice - Wrocław section of the A4 motorway.
For the first time in history the traffic on this section exceed the 105,000 vehicles barrier. Interestingly, 36% of drivers used electronic payment in the viaTOLL system (where as many as 12.5% used viaAUTO), the remaining 64 % of drivers chose the manual transaction.
A large part of electronic transactions, which reduce the toll settlement, allowed to avoid many kilometres of traffic jams before the toll plazzas.
