Yes....And there was the question where had been the center of Greater Morava....(off topic)....Both rivers are the tributary of Danube......Morava/March/Morva is the bordering river between Austria and Slovakia, and there was the iron curtain.....The heritage is the lack of road connections.....

Did you know that many years ago Romania and Poland were bordering? Today that's the border between Romania and Ukraine. Here's a picture from that time:



Border between Romania and Austro-Hungarian Empire, nearby town of Predeal (now a ski resort in central Romania):

Yes, on the peak of Stoh, currently the border between Ukraine and Romania there is the former tripoint among Czechoslovakia, Poland and Rumania.....Before 1939 it was the mosteast point of Czechoslovakia......After that there was shortly the border between Hungary and Poland....On the other hand at Myslowice in Poland there is former tripoint among Germany, Austria and Russia.......before 1914.

Finland will intensify the surveillance of it's eastern borders.

The finnish Border Control Authority is being granted more money due to a change in the security environment.

This appropriation is intended to develop the technical supervision of the russian-finnish border in South-East Finland, North Karelia and in the eastern Gulf of Finland.

The supplementary budget proposed the Border Control Authority a 1.9 million EUR of additional appropriations.

- Contrary to a year ago the situation for Finland's security environment has changed fundamentally, so an additional appropriation is justified. The coverage of the eastern borders must be enhanced urgently to maintain a credible and independent border patrol.

You're really messed up if you miss that exit and you don't have the passport with you.
Why "watch for stopped vehicles?"

Re not having a passport, there must be infrastructure at the border post to permit people to make U-turns, even if you have to come up to the booth and then they say to turn around.

Re "watch for stopped vehicles," Alserrod's got it: lines at the customs booths. You'll occasionally see "Watch for stopped vehicles" in other situations where, well, where free-flowing freeway traffic may suddenly stop. Toll booths, construction zones....

That's why those warning signs are for.

Actually, I think you may be able to go to border cities like Tijuana without one.

I remember in some high-traffic motorways in Spain the signal "last exit in Spain" even if no passport booths were ahead.

I suppossed it was prior to taking out those booths but they have another function... a judge can "retire your passport". This is, even if there are no passport control, as a measure, he can say that you are not allowed to quit the country for a while.

Providing there are some major cities quite boundary... it is not unuseful at all.

(obviously in these kind of few traffic roads, they have non-sense. If you really have forbidden to quit the country and you see a "Portugal" sign... you make a U-turn and learn to program better your gps...)

Btw. i am just curious: Ireland uses American-style signs while UK uses European like. I've been googling and streetviewing the situation, especially at frontier regions, and have not found a single a single sign informing about it. There are places without checks and at one point you've got a classic Euro-sign and few meter away you get American diamond.

Both are valid in the Vienna Convention, so there really isn't any need to inform.

EDIT: Allow me to illustrate, these are all allowed:
