The Canada-USA crossings east of Buffalo/Niagara (I-190) are all very quiet with few, if any, delays. They are also all very quiet with few, if any, delays between Sault Sainte Marie and the Peace Arch (I-5).

Interesting pictures! I've seen more recent pictures of this border crossing. AFAIK you can only cross with a Russian business visa, not with a normal Russian visa. That means quite a detour if you're from Kirkenes

I very much like the idea of a crossing prepared to Schengen.

But direction for cars is somewhat missing on the first pic.

They're already in this thread, but unfortunately Search doesn't work here. There're some pics in GE.

I suppose that pictogram at the H border means 'no cell phones while driving'?
To me it looks more like 'no smoking'.

What's more, you don't need to fasten your seatbelts in the build-up area.

That's interesting - why is there no Customs controls at the Hungarian/Croatian border? Most borders with the EU that I've seen include Red and Green lanes to 'declare' what you have.

(having said this, Medyka is a fantastic example of where everyone is treated equally as if they're making a declaration!)

Carina and Vám mean Customs. There is no green lane, customs officers ask everyone whether they have something to declare or not.

intra-USE border crossings nowadays are nonexisting... If you manage to enter the USE, you can go everywhere inside the USE.. meaning that if a russian enters Latvia.. they could go to Spain without being stopped once. Nice for the duration of the trip.. but you can't stop people illegally entering a countr

*USE= United States of Europe (formerly EU)... damn you Lisboa Treaty!

Please stop misinforming people, there aren't just Europeans here, they could get confused. The EU stays EU. Even if it became a country one day (which I doubt will happen in the next few decades), it could stay EU, just as the Soviet Union was a country. And anyway, this isn't an appropriate place to discuss the Lisbon Treaty.

We took a trip last Saturday to Victoria through US-395, BC-3 and Trans-Canada. We crossed the border at Cascade border station located on Highway 395. There were no cars, but we still had to wait several minutes until a border guard actually noticed us from inside the station
