In our neighboring country, poland, there are fees for the use of some roads. This article shows you how the toll system works in poland, which roads it applies to, and how you can save money when paying the tolls.

How does the car alarm work?

A modern car alarm system is a system consisting of several sensors connected to an electronic module (processor). The module analyzes the data and generates possible events. So if an attempted theft is detected, an alarm is triggered in the car. Normally, its activation is indicated by flashing indicators and a wailing siren. the operation of the alarm system is simple: when one of the sensors "reports" a security breach to the processor, the alarm is triggered and the device will block the ignition or the starter of the car through an internal or external relay.
