One of my cousins is a truck driver and he told me that one day he was driving close to Budapest and another truck driver was asking on the radio: "how is traffic on MO?". Nobody answered. He asked a few more times... still nobody answered. Then he heard on the radio: "It's M0 (zero), not MO, you idiot".

I found only this:

Evening shot of the M0 Danube Bridge - taken form the bus nr. 138 (maybe it's an Ikarus 435)

What is more interesting, the speed limits.

Driving from the M7, until the M6 vmax=100km/h. After the M6 junction, vmax=110km/h for about 1 km. Before the Danube bridge, there is a bend, and vmax=80 km/h. An there's a camera, too:

Video

On the bridge, and after that vmax=110km/h.

No official statistics have been published yet, but it seems that more and more trucks drive on national roads instead of motorways, because the toll is lower in national roads.
Additionally: since the sections of roads inside a town are not tolled at all , many trucks drive through the towns, even is there's a bypass - wich is tolled.
Tha majority of international transit is on the motorways, just like before, but for domestic transport is the toll obviously too high and they choose the slower but cheaper ways. Nonetheless, even some trucks in international transit choose national roads, especially from and to Romania.

The solution is easy, ban through trucks from towns and make the tolls the same everywhere.

This effect was to be expected, not expecting this would be ignorant, since it happened a lot in Germany as well (not to mention France).

How realistic is it, that east-west truck-traffic will avoid Hungary completely and go via Croatia and Slovenia instead?

There are tolls in those countries as well. I don't think it really pays off. I assume many Slovakian trucks from Bratislava to eastern Slovakia are now back on the routes through Slovakia because there is no cheap Hungarian toll anymore (it was profitable to detour via Hungary before).

Newspapers wrote she had had an argument with his husband that night leading to her depart from Kosice to Bratislava through Hungary. Investigation has shown her speed was 200 km/h at moment of crash. She had opened bottle of vodka on board, but her lawyer has told she was drinking only after the crash.
Is she still in the Hu prison or she was released? I understand that witnesses issued that she was harassing the car of the victims with flashes and agressively driven in their tail.

Just visiting due to occupational obsession, or you have some kinda "free pass" to the constuction site?

I was just driving from Arad (Romania) to Italy. I left from home early in the morning, but after Nagylak border crossing the traffic was diverted because some incident (maybe accident, don't know exactly) in the village of Apatfalva. While driving on this route I noticed the construction site so I took few pictures of it.
