I crossed in to Switzerland from France at St Louis/Basel quite late in the evening two months ago with my passport drawn. There was however no customs check.

@PLH: Quite a clear difference in pavement between CZ and PL. They really need to redo the Czech side. Is there such a difficult sign with the speed limits when crossing into Poland?

I am asking coz here in the media were saying that the whites are proved to be better than the yellow ones. What is more logical coz if you look at it it is more noticeable than the yellow.

Nice link PLH! Some pretty good pics
What is the penalty if you cross the border illegally and you get caught? I read somewhere that if you cross from Norway into Russia illegally and you get caught, you have to pay 5000 NOK.

Dunno, but I'll check

edit: you might be either fined (15 - 150 €) or inprisoned for up to 3 years when it was by using force or a trick. And don't forget that Russians won't welcome you...

this is now an old border corssing Goričan - Letenye (HR - H). it is the largest border crossing between Croatia and Hungary. new border crossing is built at motorway, this one will be from now on for lorries and maybe for local traffic.

Goričan (HR)


Letenye (H)

Why wouldn't you be allowed to cross there as e.g. a tourist? Just to keep the traffic separated?

no, when i said local traffic, i meant local roads connection. actually, state roads (D3 in HR and 7 in H), but not motorways. i don't know for future status of that border crossing, i only know that prime function will be lorries' traffic

In November the EU should decide if Switzerland is ready to join the Schengen area. If yes, probably in december CH will become a member. One curiosity: there is no custom union between EU and CH so if the police will stop you they will have the right also to ask you what you brought into the country.

As far as I know the regulations allow for either white or yellow, so I'm guessing it was just a convenient time to make it closer to what everyone else was using, better standardization.

Line of trucks waiting to get into Russia from Estonia: Sometimes truck drivers have to wait 10 days to cross the border.

I once saw a report on that border on Dutch tv. I really feel sorry for all those truck drivers. Brute Russian bureaucracy
