Count to zero, or how to achieve zero fatal accidents on the motorway
On all holiday weekends, on selected AmberOne MOPs you will be able to check how our not necessarily good habits affect road safety.
As part of the campaign, an interactive animation and educational installation was prepared, which addresses four aspects of safety, which are also the most common causes of road accidents:
- failure to adapt speed to road conditions
- failure to maintain a safe distance between vehicles
- disturbance by using electronic devices while driving
- fatigue behind the wheel
The Count to Zero action is a chance to test yourself during interactive fun and learn for yourself that it is not difficult to avoid accidents. The installation will allow drivers in special goggles to see the world with very tired eyes, assess their reflexes on the reflexometer, look in reality at the real safe distance between vehicles and check in the animated game how many stimuli from the road escape our attention when we play with the phone.
In addition, a special attraction will be waiting for younger Travelers: a scaled outdoor board game called “Green Journey”, in which children are themselves “pawns”. The game deals with the topics of safety in travel and pro-ecological behavior, so it will certainly provide a good portion of movement and entertainment, as well as knowledge for all – not only holiday – “green travels”.
We invite you on all holiday Saturdays to MOP Olsze, Malankowo or Kleszczewko. Note: in case of inclement weather, activities may be postponed to Sunday, the current schedule with the given location is published on our FB profile.

Expansion of the Toll Station on AmberOne A1 Motorway
As a result of increasing traffic and in view of the comfort of travel on AmberOne Motorway A1, work has begun on the reconstruction of the Toll Station in Rusocin aimed at increasing its capacity by building additional 2 exit lanes.
In addition to automatic payments introduced at toll plazas in 2019, it is a basic form of improving the passage through the gates. Construction is already underway and GTC and Intertoll are working to ensure that the new toll gates added to the site are in place at the end of 2022.
The work will be carried out in such a way that it is not burdensome for drivers, but the need to temporarily close individual gates cannot be ruled out.
