Laois County Council has already contacted the Polish Embassy in Dublin regarding a plan to introduce road signs in the language for the benefit of drivers from the eastern European country.
The news came as the number of road traffic fatalities so far this year climbed to 71 including four killed in separate accidents on another black weekend.
The latest victim was a 20-year-old Dubliner, killed early yesterday in a single vehicle accident.
A member of Laois County Council's roads' division said the council was awaiting approval for the scheme.
However, the local authority has not decided which roads will feature the new signage or the proposed introduction date.
More than 120,000 Polish citizens have travelled to Ireland to live and work since accession to the European Union in 2004.
