Eh... it's pretty logical that these roads are closed for car traffic, isn't it? They are ridiculously small. It's not much more than a cycling path really.

They used to be allowed for cars, until the border at least.

...and the second one still is, for local traffic at least. It seems pretty obvious that this road should not be used for anything other than local traffic IMO. If Schengen created dangerous cutoffs it's only responsible behaviour of the Austrian government to plant these signs.

Anyway, there're tons of such narrow roads allowed for cars, I doubt the Netherlands is any exception. Roads are built for cars, not bikes; bikes don't need such wide paths. And it's not like that would become the main road between Vienna and Budapest.

Last pictures taken yesterday (Jan. 18) of the Franco-Brazilian bridge over the Oyapock River. The new date set for inauguration is sometime this Spring.

If those pictures were taken yesterday I seriously doubt that the inauguration date is this year.

Border crossing of Kingdom of Slovenia and Austrian monarchy.

I know about one place in Slovakia where used to be a border of A and H before we "joined" and became a one country - http://goo.gl/maps/RRRb

There was no "Kingdom of Slovenia", there were different kingdoms and lands inside the Holy Roman Empire, and Austria was one of them, becoming a separate empire only in 1804, and of course something totally different from today's Austria, a new country which originates from the collapse of the Habsburg empire at the end of 1918.

The old border between the Kingdom of France and the Kingdom of Aragon. Now it's fully French territory on both sides of the old border.

We just had a chat about this weird border which goes between village and its castle - http://goo.gl/maps/5Uxw

Village Somoskő down there is Hungarian and the castle on a hill Šomoška is in Slovakia.

The USA-Canadian border




Ridiculous to enforce the US-Canadian border, it's like trying to enforce state or province borders.

The problem is that the USA is very leery about Canada's relatively lax refugee policies - admit those claiming refugee status first and investigate their cases later, while the USA holds refugees in overseas camps until their cases can be investigated and they can be cleared for entry - it is believed by the USA to be too much of a security hole. If those policies can be harmonized, bringing about the oft-discussed 'Strong Perimeter', it is my belief that the border checkpoints can then be safely removed.

A few years back, I was talking with some USCustoms guys who told me flat out that had the 2001-09-11 attack not happened, Canada and the USA were on track to have the checkpoints removed by about 2004.

I agree - it is sad that the border between two countries that have not fired a shot in anger at each other in nearly 200 years can be so difficult to cross while those between countries that have fought VICIOUS wars against each other twice or more over the past century are as easy to cross as are state lines in the USA - and you don't even have to change money anymore.
