Because of EU requirement for 90 km/h limiter, HGV's in the UK are actually speed-limited to 56 mph

Too fast. 56 mph = 90.1 km/h.

Hungarian border speed limits sign in a 1986 documentary found here. The 3 x 3 matrix was simpler than the 4 x 4 one that came afterward (including expressway type roads).
However, this sign had no pictograms for build-up and non-buildup area, just text in German, English and Russian.



(The documentary is titled "To Hungary on (public) roads", explaining to those from abroad how to get to and around by car. Since it is narrated in Hungarian, actually not many foreigners would understand it)

In Ukraine you won't see any never mind. 130 on motorway, 110 on 4-laned roads like M05, 90 on normal roads(if you can more and if you don't care about your babe) and 60 in cities +20 km/h tolerance (the policeman may stop you and warn you not to exceed the speed limits but can't fine you). Our policemen don't see you often speeding 140 on M06 near any post in Korets, Novohrad-Vol. etc. even if it is allowed to drive 50. My father sped once 175 near the post. No joke. The police didn't catch him.

Is it really compulsory to use headlights at all times in the summer too ? and in cities ? I think some countries in eastern europe only use headlights at day in the wintertime.

AFAIK Hungary and Slovakia require all-day-headlights too.

Are Daytime Running Lamps enough or do you actually need to turn on the low beam lamps?

I don't know how other countries, but in Slovakia are daytime lights enough. Just make sure your rear lamp is shining.

In Sweden and all Scandinavia low beam lamps without rear lights are allowed, meaning the small diode lamps.

Although some people complain about motorists driving without rear lights at dawn, because the light-sensors are poor on some car models. (especially Hyundai)

If your car is of model 2011 or later and has integrated diode lamps, you dont need the rear lights in the day. This is an eu-agreement.

In tunnels and parking garages you need to have you rear lights on.

That's a different issue. My 2015 Hyundai has daytime running lights, but I used my headlights most of the time due to the number of tunnels.

I noticed quite a bit of people drive with high beams on in tunnels, I found it rather unnecessary and annoying. It also makes it more difficult to judge the distance to oncoming traffic in case you want to pass another car in a single tube tunnel.

high beams are generally very annoying if you are in oncoming car.

Is overtaking in a tunnel allowed? In all tunnels I drove it was not allowed to do this (I am talking about one-lane-per-direction-tunnels)

It's rather uncommon in most of Europe, but Norwegian tunnels have low traffic volumes and are often the only straight sections of road. So people pass in tunnels, it is also allowed to do so in many cases.
