...yes and I can find som polish or finnish words too. In fact if you know the alphabet in any languages then it is already much easier to pronounce a foreign word.

The alphabet is pronounced very differently from country to country,even from region to region. Just look az english,they even pronounce the f*ckin' "o" as an "e" in women!!!

If english would be a job you have to do,you would be fired because of its chaotic nature.

So, The 2/A at Budapest is going to be an expressway (maybe motorway) all the way to Vác ( M2) The Widening / construction starts in 2010.
Although I couldn´t see if it is going to be a motorway?
Isn´t it already an expressway to Dunakeszi ?

The dog in the car is the joke, but the pics are way too large

yesterday i went to Kaposvár and i took few pics. border crossing photos are at appropriate thread.

here we're starting with funny (atleast to me it is allways funny at hungarian border crossings) sign which gives information about ending border crossing




this one allways makes me scare because i allways think that you have made some new motorway which requires vignette right behind border and it is jsut an information




old signs in berzence i dislike font, but they are indeed very clear and understandable (although i allways hardly missed some larger cities here, for instance, Nagykanizsa and Kaposvár; Nagykanizsa appears too far in Iharosberény, Kaposvár in Böhönye)



Nagyatád


i saw lots of paper policemen in this area, i missed to photograph them


road 68. not in the best condition and i miss edge lines.


finally desired destinations signed!








i really like those islands at entrances to places to slow down the traffic it is very usefull because nobody continues driving with speed as at open road




i have noticed at road 61 those "french styled" edge lines (not solid, but in long dashes). is it still in use?


maybe here you could see it better (they have faded)


road 61 is under reconstruction in large part. here is refreshed section. unfortunately, i haven't caught this large sign showing how to drive through Kaposvár


i haven't taken bypass of Kaposvár




at entrance to the city i have met this funny car with Opel Corsa's rear lights and 45 km/h speed limit (probably can be registered on motorcycle plates)


and one from Kaposvár - they have many of intersections with counting-down traffic lights

Paper policemen?!

No,here we usually see laser-guided digital policemen,who measure speed before we could see them.

Nice pics, x-type!

I haven't seen a paper policeman in a long time. But there is even a flat police car somewhere in the country

The bypass of Kaposvár is half profile expressway of a 2x2, and it will be part of the M9 some day.

Why is the general speed-limit sign in so many different colors and sizes?

One for the motorway (probably a new style) and one for the other roads?
