Border between Senegal and Gambia. Notice the good pavement on the Senegalese side of the border, and the bad pavement on the Gambian side of the border.

Border bridge between two of the most prosperous African countries, Gabon and Cameroon.

No border check?

Border bridge Senegal and Mali:



Sign at the entrance on Malian territory. From top to bottom, the French text means:
Always in good company!
Caution! AIDS & STD are still around.
Welcome to Mali. / Drive protected!

I like the Gabon and Cameroon picture. That road almost looks like a good European road. And I'm also wondering where the check could be.....

I believe Gabon & Senegal have generally relatively good roads for African standards

Talking of Gabonese roads, here is a road in Gabon crossing a "border" of another sort, the Equator!

Well, these "left driving" countries are either geographically isolated or have underdeveloped road systems, so it isn't really a problem.

At the border between Scotland and England, in case Scottish people forget it's left-hand traffic in England.

Traffic change at the Thai-Lao border. A nice X road sign that is rarely seen.
