I think the best solution is to respect the rules.

Paying road tolls by smartphone

There are many ways to pay the road toll; different ones apply in each county. In Switzerland you buy an annual sticker and put it on the windscreen, while in Italy, France and Croatia you pay at the toll-gates
on the highways. In Austria you can buy a sticker for short or long term too. Hungary, where the toll used to be collected via a toll-gate system in the 1990s, today uses one of the most modern systems, allowing quick and comfortable payment 24 hours a day, basically at any point of the country.
Since January 2015 a toll has to be paid not only on highways but on numerous express roads and other key routes, so you need to pay special attention while planning your route, whether tolls apply on the roads you are willing to use. Although we are used to asking for “stickers” at the petrol stations, we don’t actually stick anything on our windscreens, since these stickers are e-stickers.
Besides the 10-day, one-month and annual sticker you can also buy a so-called country sticker for HUF 5000 per year per passenger car. If we are only using the roads on a certain part of the country regularly, then it’s worth to buy the e-sticker only for these counties.
However, you do not need to stop at a petrol station in order to pay the road toll, since you can do it via the internet, or even by texting, using your smartphone. On the website autopalyamatrica.hu you can use all the major bankcards to pay for the charges.
In case you decide to text the code of the e-sticker you are willing to purchase (Telekom subscribers for example can use the 30 8100 1000 regular fee number), you can immediately use the road sections with toll after receiving the confirmation message. Pay attention, however, only to drive on the road once the toll has been paid because the system will not accept subsequent payments.
You can buy a highway sticker via texting for a car licensed abroad as well. In this case, however, you have to include the car’s country mark as well. If for example you are driving a car licensed in Austria and your licence plate number is W 12345 T, your text will have to include the following code: w12345t a
Although you can’t use a foreign mobile phone to buy an e-sticker via texting, the internet purchase is available from any network, so you will be able to handle the tolls from your smartphone even if you have a foreign subscription.
This series is aimed at making your stay in Hungary as comfortable as possible and it is brought to you by Magyar Telekom Zrt., the country’s biggest mobile services provider.

Budapest Times should improve their skills of precise and correct reporting:

County sticker, and not country sticker. One letter too much, but confusing and misleading especially to foreigners.

The country today is subdivided into 19 counties. A county sticker will cover a selected county only, but if your commute covers a few counties only, you still save a significant amount compared to a full-country one.
You just have to take care not to miss the exit, since with these county stickers, motorway staff is more likely to check motorists right after county limits ...

The last 22,5 km to the border is planned. Construction date is unknown as a result of the political issues in Ukraine.

Took some nice photos of M7 in direction of Budapest, between exit 130 (near Balatonlelle) and the beginning of the three-lane section (near Székesfehérvár)

1.



2.



3.



4.



5.



6. Entering Köröshegy viaduct, speed limit 110 km/h



7.



8.



9.



10.



11.



12.



13. Third lane opening up. From here, motorway will remain three-lane all through Budapest



14.



15. Driver's education: keep right (i.e. don't hog in the middle lane when not overtaking)

This April saw the lowest number of deaths (22) in one month on Hungarian roads since the fall of socialism (The worst was the August of 2003 with 140 deaths)

Police say that the installation of high-tech speed detectors, a recent 24-hour police raid on the roads and rising petrol prices all could have contributed to this.

Just a little correction: M30 is planned to run between the M3 motorway and Tornyosnémeti (at the Hun-Svk border), which has already been completed to Miskolc. You probably meant the Miskolc-Tornyosnémeti section.

They said that construction of a short section (1.7 km) at Tornyosnémeti will begin in the second half of this May, and the full motorway will be finished "in a few years".
http://www.vezess.hu/hirek/2016/05/0...palya-halozat/

Other projects:
-the Hegyfalu-Csorna section of M86 will be finished by September (thereby we will have a continuous expressway between Szombathely and Győr)
-they will continue with building the M85 around Csorna
-they will start building the Debrecen-Berettyóújfalu section of M35 this summer
-the tenders for the Budapest-Vác section of the M2 (which already exists but mostly has only 2x1 lanes), the Brettyóújfalu-Nagykereki (Hun-Rom border) section of the M4, the M0*-Cegléd section of the M4, the Tiszakürt-Kondoros section of the M44 will be published and they also mentioned the Abony-Törökszentmiklós section of the M4.

*which is actually the Üllő-Cegléd section

Thanks. That's a great news.

It was my mistake, I meant the section Miskolc-Tornyosnémeti

Is the short M30 section near Tornyosnémeti going to be 2×2 or 2×1?

And I know it has been asked many times in this thread, but any update for M15?

I was recently traveling from Subotica (Serbia) via Hungary to Nagykanizsa and further on to Varaždin (Croatia). For a long time, I was trying to figure out which was the most clever way to travel, but I soon realized that it was not that easy to decide where to drive.

Option 1 was border crossing Horgoš/Röszke and then M5 to Budapest ring M0, further on M7 towards Nagykanizsa and Letenye/Goričan (434km, Google 4h30). - longest but most comfortable
Option 2 was border crossing Kelebija, Route 53 to Solt, then M8 over the Danube, and Route 62 to Székesfehérvár, then on M7 towards Nagykanizsa (391km, Google 4h30) - compromise
Option 3 was Subotica-Sombor-Osijek-Croatian D2 all the way to Varaždin (338km, Google 5h10) - shortest but most annoying

I chose Option 2 as I thought it was the best thing to do. The drive took some time due to heavy truck traffic on Route 53, it was kind of boring until I got to M8, but okay. Most of the roads in good condition, especially Route 62 was amazing. Only one single industrial area with 50 km/h and that was it. You could easily go 120 on many sections...

Now my question, without having read the entire thread:
Why is there no connection in the south of Hungary that would go something like Nagykanizsa - Kaposvar - M9 Danube crossing - Szeged? That way, a lot of traffic would avoid Budapest and go through Southern Hungary. It would even make sense to use it as an alternative from Varaždin/Čakovec to Osijek instead of the Croatian motorway (which is expensive)

Are there any plans to build at least a expressway (without village crossings) down there? I think the biggest issue is the lack of a west-east connection from Kaposvar to Szekszárd... I noticed that there is not even a normal state road connecting these places.

That's because Sexárd doesn't lie between Kaposvár and Szeged.
