It seems most truck traffic between Ontario and Michigan has a destination in the region. I believe most through trucks use the Port Huron - Sarnia border crossing because it is less crowded and better connected to the freeway networks of both the U.S. and Canada. On the other hand, coming from I-75, crossing at the Ambassador Bridge saves you a trip through the central and northern Detroit metro area.

Coming from I-75 and onto the 401 towards Ontario, the difference is only 12 miles / 19 km when choosing Port Huron instead of the Ambassador Bridge.

19km longer through Port Huron or 19km shorter?

The automobile industry in particular is heavily concentrated along that area in southeastern Michigan, Flint, and southwestern Ontario including the GTA (Ford-Oakville and GM-Oshawa). I think a lot of trucks pass Windsor just because of large concentration of automotive factories actually inside the Windsor city or Detroit area which generates large numbers of "local" or quasi-local traffic.

Yes, the landscape is magnificent at the Falls (even if Mugabe's Zimbabwe is not very inviting otherwise), plus Africa is very under-represented in this thread.

Here's an odd one - https://www.google.com/maps/@45.8626...JCmdBMt45w!2e0

It's the I/CH border near Chiasso, but what makes this interesting is that there are still gates on the Italian side that can be used to lock the border. There can't be many places like that left in Western Europe!

Great find. Any idea where the actual border stones are?

I have crossed from CH to I and vice versa a few times and seem to recall that the border formalities (if any) were on entering CH

There are some stretches of the CH/I border in this area which are fenced.
