Border crossing Petržalka/Berg (Czechoslovakia-Austria) one year after fall of communism.

Note the huge waiting queues. This video will be suitable to "driving videos" topic as well. I am not an author.



The same border crossing today: click here

I have been crossing that border many times during EU times before Slovakia joint to Schengen area and the checks were rather ridiculous than serious. Austrian and Slovak policemen were sitting boringly and seemed like "Okay, hi and don't disturb me, just go"

Israel-Lebanon coastal border - Rosh hanikra!
Crossing point, lookout, restaurant, funicular transport to the sea level caves, historic railroad tunnel, all at the same site!

It was 1990 (I think) when I first visited Western Europe and it had happened in Petrzalka. On the other side of recently opened iron curtain, I sat and drunk beer in very crowded inn in Wolfsthal and had had pretty nice chat with a cute waitress. Conversation had lasted until I mentioned which country I was coming from

That crossing is still closed, right? I suppose you can't go all the way until the border itself?

I think it was rather the same on most of the 2004-2007 borders - I've done some research on the attitudes of the border police in that period, and the general impression I've got is that the checks were mostly a complete waste of time.

I asked quite a lot of people in Frankfurt Oder/Slubice as to the attitudes of the police - and only one person reported being refused entry to the 'other' country after 2004. The reason? He was so drunk (at the city bridge crossing) that he had to hold himself up against the old passport control booths inside the administrative buildings - so they told him to come back when he could stand properly.

Does anyone know how seriously the CZ/SK border was controlled (especially away from the major crossings) from 1993-2004?

Yes it was. I took in April 2004 a bus Prague-Bratislava and it was checked, received passport stamps etc. And the Slovak police checked the speed on the bridge in nomansland between the two border crossings :/

Very seriously. I remember I crossed that border in 1996 and the Czech policemen ordered to park aside and unload whole German car standing in front of us.

There is a rum commercial ad on the side of an official sign, asking for drive carefully and keep the speed limit? Serious!

I can't speak for Guyana but in Barbados there's no law against drink/drunk driving per se. Basically, as long as you don't kill anyone whilst under the influence you're OK.

Maybe the sign was sponsorized by the rhum company that wanted to express the message: "we advertise our alchool but also suggest people to be prudent".

That case they should add : responsibly drink and meanwhile do not drive! Not even 30km/h..
