Slovenian signs on the Hungarian side of the road, Hungarian signs on the Slovenian side of the road. That Hungarian sign in Slovenia is particularly interesting, because I don't even know what it means. I guess "border control ahead", but that's been obsolete since 2007.

It looks like a sign warning you that you might be stopped, but still - it's a very strange sign!

One thing I've never understood - why did they remove all the flags from border crossings? I always thought that the two national flags and the EU flag were a nice touch on many borders.

https://www.google.si/maps/@46.98484...UdN9hZab_w!2e0 - here's a curious one. What's this "control" point for here? It seems to be active (the lights are on, the signage looks current).

Are they used a lot? For what I remember from Helsinki (somewhat comparable to Dublin), not so long ago (before the completion of Vuosaari port) a train merely crossing the street on its way to the port caused big problems to the traffic in that part of the city centre.
Those tracks are part of the Alexandria Tramway. The only traffic it sees is the 3 daily Tara Mines ore trains from Navan, Co. Meath. The track is also used for taking delivery of new railway vehicles that arrive by ship.

And yes, each train causes a fair bit of disruption to road traffic.

^ Why is the road on the Slovenian side bad? It's new and it's quite wide for a local road.

Border Spielfeld - Šentilj (A - SLO) on 28th december. It was closed from half past 1 until half past 3 I think. Neither driver that come from B67 Grazer Straße nor driver from R-437 Dunajska cesta were allowed to cross it. Some kind of protests about paying taxes in both countries as some Slovenians work in Austria. The border on the A1 highway was not affected.

'Cause of dirt .
And from some reason i thought that this road is just going to sit there without finishing touches.

Living in direct proximity to the NL-GER border I am crossing these borders (A37) quiet often. The Dutch government did start in I guess 2010 to build those camera bridges a few meters in the country on every major motorway. So far this is in accordance to the EU laws (they say). But frankly I am puzzled, every time I cross they take a picture of me – even if they claim to not save those photos…


Does anybody have any further info regarding this topic? Is such a system in place somewhere else in the EU?

According to the Slovenian law you must clean your wheels before entering a paved road. Of course no one does it. That road is used only by the people dirtying it anyway.

Finland does it routinely, as far as I know. I'm pretty certain (and it's confirmed by Street View) that all borders are monitored via camera, as well as other areas (such as the entrance/exit from the border zones). I think the French abandoned most controls on the Swiss border in exchange for cameras, and I've got a feeling that the Norwegian border is also controlled by camera. I would be hugely shocked if the UK wasn't monitoring every single port by camera, too. I suspect that every single external Schengen border crossing is equipped with cameras, too. Finally - it will be legal, as the Schengen Borders Code makes it clear that you must not be impeded when crossing the border, but it is silent on the issue of surveillance (as long as you don't have to slow down/stop for it).

I was wanting to ask about that: is the 60 km/h limit at the Salzburg-Walsenberg crossing illegal?

According to the Schengen Borders Code, yes. There should be no artificial speed limits at borders, and it clearly states that obstructions to traffic should be removed quickly. It's what the EU used to force the French/Spanish to dismantle the old border crossing at La Jonquera, although they were clearly overdoing it with the 'random' checks there. But - if there's a vignette sales point there, and perhaps a Customs clearance station (there are a few 'internal' points in Austria, such as at Spielfeld) - then perhaps the 60km/h limit is justifiable.

in the cases of Spain, France and someone more, those "vignettes" are toll booths. In all of them you are able to have an electronic payment system and cross them reducing to 40 but never stopping.
Therefore, it is nos possible to use them for random checks.
