Actually the building has two doors and two postal adresses, but the main entrance is on Belgian Soil, so this is the country where they pay taxes.

It was common among the buidings divided by the border move the door of the house to the other country in order to pay lower taxes. This was decades ago, however.

There are several between Canada and the USA. For example, MN (formerly 'US') 61 becomes ON 61 at the Grand Portage border crossing.

It is not exactly the same, but Italian SS 27 is part of the E 27.

Between New England states most of the state routes have the same number, which isn't the case elsewhere in the US

A new border check point opened yesterday between Bulgaria and Greece, six months before abolishing Bulgaria and Romania's border controls with other Schengen states.

Where is it located? It seems to end in a dirt road on the Greek side, or am I mistaken in that picture?

A typical EU border crossing, pre Schengen, easy to remove.

Just because Slovakia was a part of Cezchoslovakia. D2 was planned to connect Bratislava with Brno and Prague (CZ D1) + foreign cities.

After the impressie MY-SG-border, now time for a simple boring Schengenborder. A cyclepath crosses the border between Belgium (position of the picturetaker)and the Netherlands (background) at a bordermarker.

Two Schengen borders I crossed last week:

Hungary / Slovakia on M15 / D2 (border crossing from 2:08):



Slovakia / Czech Republic on D2 (border crossing from 4:32):



At 5:13 you can see a police checkpoint.

You have to buy at the border at the latest. Some hundreds meters before there is the exit to the rest area of the former border crossing and there you buy the vignette.
