It amazes me that it takes Google more than a year to integrate the new image into their maps. That image was captured 11 April 2011 and shows up in Google Earth 15 months later. I'm hoping Apple will do a better job of keeping their new mapping software up-to-date.

I love this road



I drove on it on Saturday and Sunday too at 23.00...

It's 9 years old but it looks like a brand new road with excellent pavement and road signs. And also a good example of well maintenanced gravel shoulder.

Length: 20,5 km
width: 7,50 m
allowed speed: 110 km/h
2 grade separated IC (Bogyiszló and M6), 1 at-grade IC (dirt road to Dusnok), 3 roundabouts (road 6, 5112 and 51 but these are out of the expressway section)
AADT ~4500 (and no heavy freight traffic)

I read that Apple will use TomTom instead of GoogleMaps in the near future.

He thought that Romanians who are going to the West make heavy traffic on Hungarian motorways...

Some Romanians have turned the M70 into a road of death and the M9 looks similar...

try this without at least one romanian/bulgarian/turkish lorry overtaking you:
• go on the M0
• follow the speed limits (which are 60 and 80 kph due to construction)

i dare you, i double dare you, THEY WILL BULLY YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU despite:
• no overtaking is allowed by lorries
• cameras


sorry fellas, daily experience, dunno what to tell you..

..except maybe that there is another category that does the same thing: big german cars with german plates (diesels)

Maybe most of them is too much...You can't generalize from the experience of a few past accidents.

its not only about accidents.

i once nearly crashed in a romanian van from behind at night on M1, with absolutely no lights on.
lucky me, i noticed the vehicle right before hitting it with 130 km/h because fortunately it was white.

i dont say every romanian is like that -and there are hungarian idiots as well of course- but you really see some crazy driving from romanians on our roads sometimes.

I was on an the lane on M1, near Gyor, slowing down and a guy behind overtook me on the first motorway lane, then went to exit lane in front of me and (of course) had to brake hard, making me do the same.
I absolutely didn't understand why he did that, and he had Hungarian plates .

as i said we have morons in hungary too. but somehow romanian drivers have a bad reputation not only in hungary. and i guess it comes from the bad experiences regarding romanian drivers.

just look at the plates on crashed or broke down cars after passing them on any motorway. i dont say its always romanian, but often.

just look at the plates of cars parking on the hard shoulder (for taking a leak f.e.) after passing them on any motorway. i dont say its always romanian, but often.

just look at the plates of cars stuffed to the top with luggage passing them on any motorway. i dont say its always romanian, but often.

anyway, no offense here, just judging of what i see.
