It is worth investigating the problem of whether the contemporary organization of the road safety management system in Poland takes into account in its program assumptions significant social and economic costs caused by numerous road accidents and „sees“- in a proper way – problems of road marking with signs and signals as one of the main reasons for this state of affairs. In the existing realities, proving the high number of road accidents resulting in numerous victims and deterioration of the health condition of many people and large material losses, it is purposeful to reflect on this issue. Proper road marking undoubtedly affects the level of safety in this area. The drivers of vehicles do not apply in many situations to traffic signs and signals, because their location and location often seems to be incompatible with the logic and purpose of their use. It involves many unpleasant – as mentioned above – consequences, but also (and often) manifests itself in disregarding the applicable legal provisions in road transport, which in turn reduces the level of safety culture, perceived from the point of view of security sciences.
