And currently it is about 7-8k.
However, consider that M6 is 8-9k and it is a full motorway, while M2 is 2×1 having an AADT of 25,000.

M2 is in the process of widening to full profile, isn't it?

Found a video about the new southwestern bypass of Komárom, which was opned in april (I didn't know it )

The new road number is 131 as it connects main road 13 with 1.
Noticed that the one and only overpass was built with a reservation of the 2nd carriageway.

And speed limit should be 150km/h instead of 90

******* at the wheel

two days ago i was driving on nr1 and a moron did the exact same thing, coming from the other direction

im only typing because of 2x3,75m lanes

The car had Italian plates, driven by a Romanian man. He and his passenger, a Romanian woman were the victims. The car first crashed another car while overtaking a truck, breaking down its rear-view mirror. He then steered to the right, and crashed the barrier, then suddenly steered to the left, skid, and crashed into a Romanian truck. The truck driver was lightly injured.

^ This kind of accidents happens more and more often lately. A large number of Romanians coming home for a short vacation and trying to drive all their way from Italy to God knows where in Romania... Sometimes more than 1200km and only half on motorways. The rest of these distances on congested 1+1 roads. Trying to overtake and arrive home maybe one hour sooner...
And then back to Italy or Spain, in the same manner.

It seems like italian-style driving. Overtaking while there is a vehicle coming...

I fail to believe that people intentionally overtake knowing a car comes from the opposite dirrection. Ussually, people do not pay attention or cannot see the car coming from the other direction because of varous reasons. I am quite an experienced driver and it's quite very rare to see idiots overtaking while obviously a car is coming from the other direction.

As for this particular accident, as mentioned before, people are ussually very tired from driving long distances and cannot focus anymore. That's why it's not recommended to drive more than 500 km/day.

I saw a lot of idiots overtaking while other vehicles were comming from the other direction. So far I haven't seen a colision, but there were some close ones...

Many head-on accidents occur when a vehicle comes in the right shoulder, then veer left across the road, and crash into an upcoming vehicle.

If you drive on motorway, you can go more, if you take breaks, the best way is to also have another driver and switch places.

Just go to Italy. We used to go to Italy about a decade ago on vacation. Each time, for a month. They drove like I described.

I must say that during my holliday in Romania I had that situation few times that I had to flash lights on the oncoming overtaking car and step on brakes. This made me change my behaviour and I simply prefered to drive behind few cars, not alone or in front of others on the road.

Dangerous or reckless overtaking on the two lane road is simply the most deadliest car related action on the road.
