Well, yes, as it is regarded as a natural border.

I dont think it is so easy to change the border. Probably there will be a new treaty border and Poland will give some of its territory to Slovakia in another part of the border.

No, the border IS the deepest part of the river (the so-called Talweg) - when the river changes course, the border line is also changed - this is how it is usually done in the delimitation treaties between neighbouring countries.
There will be exceptions only if the river divides an inhabited place...population movements are never a good idea.
But, in most cases these changes are very small (no more than a size of a small flat), so the border is changed with the course of the river.

They did not. In fact river (floods) changed it because river moved a bit and border line is in the middle of the river. It is defined like that, so that's why.

EDIT: I didn't see all of these posts here.

Sweden and Finland have a similar border treaty. Every 25 years a survey is carried out to determine the deepest flow of the rivers Muonio and Tornio and this is the exact border line, except for betweeen Haparanda and Torni where the border is determined by land marks.

Well, regarding the Mexican-American border movements, America could get rid of the problem of illegal immigration by Mexicans by just re-establishing the old border. Then most of the illegals would be automatically back in Mexico.

Need to make that proposition at our next tea-party meeting

Let's re-establish the pre-1804 border too.

Mexico can have all of that back.

This isn't exactly at the border, but I went on google street view from the Portuguese border till Rosal de la Frontera, and in Rosal, about 2km from the border, I found this;

Are all trucks and buses subject to control, since they use the same lane as cars with goods to declare?

Nothing is subject to control, it's an old sign. Although there was a woman stopping cars leaving Spain for the "Institute of Tourist Studies"

That sign should be prior to 1993. In any case it is still in good condition.

November this year.

Czech - Slovak border.


Another one.


Hungarian - Slovak border crossing.


The last one is obviously old style(better in my opinion) sign. Speed limit for built-up area seems to be repainted.

It is 50 km/h now. It was changed in 2007 if I am sure.

Btw, one guy from Polish SSC wrote that he was feeling like in Mexico when he was passing Šahy. : )

Exactly. Border crossing Mosty/Svrcinovec(Cadca)

The last picture has been taken in Sahy. So, you probably saw the same sign with written 60 instead of recent 50.
