More accurate last one.
The photo above is from US side, from Mexican side is even worst, it says:

" PILEGRO FIERROS BATO DEL AUGA"

If you read it in spanish would be like; " DENGAR FERRUM HOMMIES WETAR"
BATO (is a Northern Mexican slang for guy, man, individual, etc.



Back to topic, photos from the new bridge that will link the Tijuana
International Airport, with a new terminal in US side. Photo viewed from
Mexican side.

Enough to get sticked there if you try to cross the border diving or swimming. It is logical to write an alarm message

Wasn't it also rationed at some point in the 80's?

I've just found this elsewhere on SSC and thought it's worth sharing -



And I'm shocked - there were unguarded "tourist" crossings for Yugoslavian/Austrian citizens?

There were tourist crossings on the Italian border as well.

Britain has introduced checks for those leaving the country today. At the moment its only on ferry and rail exits but it will be fully implemented throughout Britain by June this year.

Where? Any pic?
AFAIK, local border crossings between Italy and SFR Yugoslavia (1954-1991) or Slovenia (1991-2007) were opened only to local residents (10 km from the border, I think) that were entitled to get a special document (lasciapassare\propusnica).

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

Only for Austrian and Yugoslavian citizens.
(no idea about this second part)

And then the opening times.

I'm just really, really surprised - although Yugoslavs could travel both West and East relatively freely, I know the border was quite strictly controlled. The only thing I can think of is that this is high up on a mountainside and that Yugoslavia monitored the area further down.

As for the UK exit checks, they're actually not really exit checks. What's happening is that travel companies will scan passports on behalf of the UK Border Force (or whatever they're called today). Uniformed officers will continue to have nothing to do with exit controls, like today.

Now that's interesting, given the reason for the exit checks:

Quote:
The Home Office has said the checks, which will be staggered across the UK, will create "a much clearer picture of who is staying in the country when they have no right to be here".
- since "Britain" does not include Northern Ireland, those leaving the UK overland for Ireland, and then leaving Ireland for a third country, will not be included in the exit check lists, and then show up in the statistics as "visa over-stayers"??
