This is the border between France (left) and Brazil (right). A road bridge is currently under construction over the river (the Oyapock River) and it should open to car traffic in 2010. It will be the first land crossing opened between France and Brazil.

And this is the road leading to the future bridge over the international border.

As for the German side - those roads without a line in the center are county, sometimes state roads - there is no line because the lanes would be too small than. Passing cars / oncoming traffic have the own responsibility to estimate the lane size.

In my opinion the most important markings on any road are the side (edge) markings, even though unfortunately they are often not present, or are fading away. They are much more important than the middle marking, in my opinion, and can be a major safety factor at night.

Italians apparently also still guard their border with Slovenia; yesterday they were "harassing" someone from Belgrade.

^ For you? j/k

I didn't hear it, I saw it when I went back home from Tarvisio through the border crossing Fusine Laghi / Rateče. Nothing serious, just a stopped car from Belgrade right on the border. Btw, I was in Villach for the first time in my life. Can't believe it, I've probably passed near it on motorway some 40 times, but never actually went to the city. It's much more beautiful and cute than I expected.

That is often called 'Blue Highway touring' (or something to that effect) here in the USA - using local roads, including the 'old' main highways, that go through the cities and towns instead of blowing by on the interstates and compatible main highways. They are called 'blue' highways because many of the most popular mapping companies use light blue lines to show the more minor local roads. The Disney-Pixar film Cars is based on that theme.

It is a VERY ENJOYABLE thing to do when roadtripping if time is not a major factor.



Now, back to the borders...

^ Indeed. Especially when your country is more or less criss-crossed by motorways/freeways. It also brings back nice memories from the times there were few motorways around (not very applicable to the US though). But Villach (despite its great location) was an exception, I'd been to all other major cities in the region.

Most Interstates were build in the late 50's and early 60's. So the network is not that old.

Depends on the width, imo. If a road is too narrow for 2 big vehicles (trucks/buses) passing each other on a normal way, I agree with that. Because in that case you have to be more concerned (passing the line) about the quality of the shoulders.
But on usual roads, with at least 3 metres per direction, the middle markings are more important. Especially during night or fog. It ensures you, you don't have to be afraid about drivers in opposite direction (if he just keeps his lane).

Agreed. Besides, if you're not sure where a road ends, just stick to the middle marking.

That border near Swinoujscie is interesting. I always thought there were no cars allowed there.
