Sorry if it has already been said but the longuest continious border without any (official) crossing points is Algeria/Morroco: 1559km.

The southwestern border of China (between Pakistan and Myanmar/Burma) doesn't have many border crossings either.

Indeed, I can only think of two: a China-Nepal crossing and a China-Sikkim (India) one, the Chinese side of the latter is not marked in Google Maps but a look on satellite view shows it indeed exists. There are a couple more roads reaching the India-China border between Kashmir and Nepal, however the Chinese part is missing.

Does anyone know why ROI doesn't use EU border signs?

Political reasons. Irish view the whole island as a single entity.

Of course, some of that was legitimate. Like the I-77/I-80 interchange being in or near Macedonia, Ohio, and how there got to be two Luxembourgs.... :-)

And it was fun while it lasted.

Deer aren't allowed to cross the border unless they have a passport?

It reminds me safety prospects I have gotten on H/SRB border with an attempt of Slovak translation.

It was really comprehensible, but one thing made me really laugh.

The point "Overtake carefully" was translated as "Pretekaj bezpečne", what literally means "Race carefully" The correct one is "Predbiehaj bezpečne"
