Exactly. This is the source:

It says M43 Makó-Nagylak section will open end of 2014. That means one and a half years delay...:-(

That's about one year later than the scheduled opening for Timisoara-Nadlac, but considering the probable delays, I am assuming there will not be a major timelag in between the 2 openings.

my favorite video regarding reckless driving. It happened it Romania but appearently its a turkish truck, overtaking a bulgarian.

I hope so too, but considering the fact that no motorway has been EVER opened in Hungary on time (except M6 of course), lets count with an opening somewhere in 2015 :-)

The driver took some cold pills which cause dizziness and may induce sleep as side effect. According to prescriptions, persons should not drive after taking the pills. Obviously, few drivers are aware of that.

According the hungarian news, the driver had diarrhea and obviously he was in bad shape.

Yes and 6 of them could still be alive if they would have not travelled in a minibus approved for 9 passengers. ;-)

Human stupidity has no limits. Even among the dead ones!

Those vehicles are coffins on wheels. Driving 3,000 km in such vehicles is like paying a premium for being dumb. Well, that's how the world goes around. Stupid always pay up!

Today, demonstrations againts the governments caused big jams...
M3:


Budaörsi út, not much after the end of M1-M7:






Now in Budapest the air pollution has already reached some critical levels due to bad weather... This demonstrations only help to improve the smog...

/PM10 concentration is over the alert limit/

What happens if the pollution remains over the limit? I remember that two (or three?) years ago they allowed only one day cars with even plates, the other day cars with uneven. This caused some problems and was not very effective. How is it now?

This rule has been withdrawn. Now only old cars of the worst air pollution category are forbidden to be used. Usually such cars (Euro 0 so at least 16 years old cars) are owned by old people that use them for 1-2.000 kms per year, so that less than 1% of the city traffic has any restriction.
Basically car traffic is almost unlimited even in a heavy pollution.

Smog is usually lasting a relatively short period of time. Traffic restrictions do not have much effect, as usually smog is caused by inversion and meteorological circumstances, not day-to-day exhaust from traffic, factories, homes and agriculture.

They did extensive tests with 80 km/h limits in the Netherlands on motorways (instead of 120 km/h). The actual decrease of pollutant concentrations was within the margin of error. It has no measurable effect.

Yes it mostly depends on weather but nowadays it forms faster. In Hungary the problem isnt with the concentration of NOx, CO2, O3, but with PM10 (particulate matter smaller than about 10 micrometers), which is emitted by mostly diesel engines (older ones without without particle filters), coal firing and wood firing. The biggest problem is that the price of gas has reached a critical limit what a lot of people can't pay, so the switched from gas heating to wood heating. About half of the people I know has been switched... And this problem for example in Budapest is much smaller because there it's hard to heat the homes with wood because they can't store it so easy, and a big percent of homes use district heating. For example here in Taksony(village) the smog was usually bigger in the last few days than in Bp. And I believe that a big percentage of the people who live in the countriside use wood for heating nowadays...

Sorry for being long and a bit offtopic
