Shouldn't the green arrow be next to the green signal (not next to the red one)?

i think the catch is that you cannot go anywhere except right there (look at the angle of the road island, it must be right separator), so additional arrow is not neccessary there at all.

In Romania we only have lower green arrow, which means "you might go but give way to the traffic".

Last summer in Arad I noticed that not all traffic lights have electronic arrows, but small square metal plates under it:

Yes, the older traffic lights have little metal squares under them with an arrow. The newer traffic lights all have electronic arrows.

I'm a little annoyed that all traffic lights in Arad have no yellow light between red and green (the sequence is red -> green -> yellow -> red, instead of red -> red+yellow -> green -> yellow -> red).

We have the same thing with the lower green arrow, we call it a "protected (left/right) turn" in which it's assured that it'll be safe to turn that direction without yielding. We don't have the arrow at the top because if you're turning right, or left from a one-way road onto another one-way road, then a red light is treated like a stop sign: Stop, wait for any oncoming traffic to pass, then go whenever it's safe. If there's no oncoming traffic, you have to stop anyway, but few people actually do. Sometimes, usually due to the way the pedestrian signals work at that particular intersection, there'll be a sign saying "No turn on red" in which case you've got to stop at the red light and wait til it turns green to go; other times, there might be a sign that says "No turn on red" with incredibly small letters at the bottom saying "when pedestrians are present" - half the time, people don't notice that last bit, so regardless of whether there are any pedestrians, they stop and wait for a green light.

I think that's the case everywhere in Romania.

Most funny thing is that the driver is listening to such an horrendous radio station with a kid in her car
