As soon as I put my ticket into the toll machine, the voice of an operator told me "what did you do? You made a U-turn on the motorway?!? You broke the highway code"
"No sir, I did not. I made a full circle on A4, A26/A4, A26 and back on A4"
"I see. Here I can't make you pay anything, but in the next few days you need to go to our central offices, where you must pay something. Your license plate has been recorded"
"..."
I received an answer by the concessionaire: they're making me pay 9.80€, trusting my own statement about my travel path, not the full 79€ of the longest motorway stretch possible.

As Google Instant suggests, many people wondered about this thing:

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

Finally home :-) Trip started at 8:00 CET in Greece. Arrived to Bratislava at 2:30. Tried Kelebia-Tompa instead of Horgoš-Rözske. Was the only car on the border crossing. However, the customs check was much more strict than at Rözske. The officer looked my luggage over and even check my travel refrigerator.

Was really surprised how Subotica nice and sympathetic city is.

Subotica is nice, and while in the area, Palic lake is a great place to visit.

I remember when I crossed at Kelebia-Tompa, the Hungarian requested me to to open the trunk, the boot, asked if I had alcohol or cigarettes.
But at that time (2010) the same procedure was done also at RO/SRB crossings.

I was really surprised about that.... But it was still worth crossing.

And on the way to the Greece, I experienced something like "batch fining in Serbia". There was a speed reduced at the certain point of Subotica-Novi Sad motorway, a police car standing in shade and then, all traffic was redirected to a rest area. A police guard stood there on the entrance and exit of the roadside rest area. Everyone who exceeded the speed limit was pulled over and fined Fortunately, I obeyed the law that time and therefore belonged among three of cars who were asked to carry on.

Macedonia also made something up. The toll was 1,50 € without taking the price in Denars (supposedly to follow the length of the motorway section) and the exchange rate into account.

Horrible looking accident on Slovak D1 happened this morning:





Fortunately, no causalities. Only one person suffers from light injuries (broken arm).

It were de facto two separate accidents. A polish truck got flat tyre and lost control. Then collided with another car and crashed to the divider barriers. After that caught in fire. The impact moved the divider barriers to the opposite direction and narrowed the left lane there. Scared lady in that lane (no wonder if you see a truck hurtling towards you) lost control and collided with other three cars.

The members who live in Hungary should tell to the authorities if they see this girl.

police.hu? Didn't Hungarian people call the police 'rendorszeg' or something like that?

Yepp, it's Rendőrség but they're using the English name for their website for some reason.
