ur police has also few BMW's 5 series, but E60. they use(d) them for special purposes like security during VIP visits (presidents, ministers).


they also have Toyota Land Cruisers. those should be also for special purposes, probably off apshalt, but i saw them often cruising around the city and doing - nothing.

Getting back to border crossing... I've been in a basketball match today and I was wondering about teams movements for league matches.

In the Spanish main basketball league this year (again after 20ish years), an Andorran team is playing.

I wonder which will be the best route to go to Bilbao, San Sebastian and Vitoria. Will it be via France or Spain?. For Bilbao and Vitoria it seems better via Spain but for San Sebastian... I do not know.

For the rest of matches, always via Spain (and for Tenerife and Gran Canaria, plane way...)

I also took these pics of the main I/RSM crossing, which connects San Marino's main "artery" road to Italy's SS 72 toward Rimini.

AFAIK this main crossing is the only one where Italians post their limits, which you see in the 2nd pic. If illegible: 50/90/110/130.

I imagine the majority of tourists (and Sammarinese) enter and leave here. Pics of this crossing have also been posted earlier in this thread.

My guess: Late 20's, early 30's.

I guess it's a border gate, not a telegraph pole, in the middle of the road? There's a tower directly behind it right? Makes it look totally out of place, like a tree.

You can really tell the difference between the two countries by looking at the road.

And the driving. Drivers in that part of Switzerland are not particularly good, but once you cross that border it's anarchy. The narrow, winding tunnels after the crossing are a white-knuckle ride. It's like an initiation ritual to Italy .

How many places in Europe have pedestrian crossings on a motorway?

I wouldn't say anarchy, but the difference to CH is of course immediately remarkable. Right behind the border, speed excess of 40-60 km/h became common - also by Swiss-plated cars . Personally I didn't mind, as motorways' (original) purpose is to enable fast travel.

The difference in quality of tolled and free roads on the way to San Marino was striking, though.

I guess de jure it is not a motorway between the CH - I borderline and the motorway sign some 100 mts behind the border.

Is the pedestrian crossing used by the public at all, or just the customs staff?

There is no vertical sign. It might be perceived as invalid

In many places in Italy there is no vertical sign, usually on minor roads, though.
