Driving there several times per month
Any idea why those scanners above the road are flashing in violet?
But it's easy to avoid this

It's an electronic border control (ANPR). Some say it's in violation of the Schengen Treaty.

^ ^ ^ Just by looking at the nature of asphalts & paints alone you always know when exactly you have crossed the Dutch-Belgian border

Yes, only customs. Since Swiss Franc is that strong, there are more controls because of the (maybe) increased number of shopping tourists.

He just took a careful look at me and my car and then let me pass without asking or checking anything.

Exactly! We have right to move freely across the ex-EU-borders as free movement law! So I don't know why this electronic system is scanning my car plates everyday... Maybe claim to Strasbourg could resolve this problem.

In what way scanning plates prevents you from moving freely across the border?

On Germany-trip this happened at the Czech-German border (link). Took 20 mins.

Not a suprise though. They regularly control there and the first 20 kms in Germany we only saw 1 other bus and 2 other cars. They had nothing to do

Two videos I made when crossing a border:



Passing the Austrian / Italian border on the Brenner Pass @ 09m50



Passing the Dutch / German border at Oldenzaal (highway A1 / A30) @ 05m25

So...?

We have a right to freely drive on the European motorways, too, and the police has a right to scan the licence plates on those roads. Nothing is in contradiction.

You may be interested in the Convention Implementing the Schengen Agreement, by June 14th 1985. The Statement 3 of the Article 2 tells us that the Schengen agreement does not prevent the local authorities from taking the actions the local legislation allows. The camera surveillance done by the police is legal in most of the member countries, I presume, and it is legal in the vicinity of the intra-Schengen borders, too.

The Schengen agreement is about crossing the borders freely but it is not about crossing the borders without any control.

Italy-Switzerland border (the yellow line) at the terminal cable car station at Plateau Rosa (3500 m), near Breuil-Cervinia. Customs area is located at the left, near the skier in white coat and black pants. The officer did basically nothing

Speaking of which, here is the Franco-Italian border at the Pointe Helbronner (3,462 m (11,358 ft)).
Pointe Helbronner is located on the cable car line above the Mont-Blanc massif & glaciers between Chamonix (France) and Courmayeur (Italy), this cable car line, which was the highest in the World when it opened in 1955, reaches 3,778 m at the Aiguille du Midi "station" (where the summit terrace & the restaurant are at 3,842m). I took the entire line two times, and I have to say that it's quite spectacular, especially the view above glaciers, and of course the view of the Mont-Blanc and all the other 4,000m+ summits.

Here are two maps:




------

Pointe Helbronner (the border is marked by the white & yellow line):
















-------

The cable cars (blue ones are on the Italian side, red ones on the French side):

Bonus: Aiguille du Midi :

Who said that Schengen borders are boring?

Thank you for the pics! I would love to ski in that region.
