I love that idea of making exit checks to find people who do not leave... you would be in contact with only those who are leaving, so to find the ones breaking the law, you just need to look at everyone else in the whole country who isn't passing the checkpoint

Interesting photo showing the Montenegrin border crossing with Croatia at Debeli Brijeg from a few years ago (before they built the current border crossing)

India and Bangladesh sign an agreement to simplify their border by exchanging 162 enclaves.

Old German-Polish border crossing in Frankfurt (Oder). This photo is notable because it shows the presence of two lines leading to the border - one for EU citizens and one for non-EU citizens. The distinction here was dropped in 2002 (at the latest) - and only one line was used. The second (non-EU line in this picture) was closed. I'm not sure when the first picture dates from - it's from the older East German era crossing, however. As the EU didn't exist until 1st November 1993, I can only narrow the date down to between 1993 and 2002.





The above picture dates from 2002, and shows the "new" (now demolished) border crossing there. The distinction between EU and non-EU traffic has been dropped, and the whole border area is rather confusingly designed.

I think the first photo could be taken around 95'.

I've found this - http://www.***********.com/detail/ne...hoto/545042677 - which seems to suggest that the "new" border crossing was being built in 1998.

It looks like they dropped the "EU" and "Non-EU" lines when building the new crossing - which in itself is rather quite odd as Poland's entry into the EU wasn't considered to be happening until around 2002 or so.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Ca...trolle-ffo.jpg

This picture shows the new crossing - but does anyone have any idea what that "box" on the left of the car might be for? I've seen them in person as well as in photographs, and I still can't figure out what they might have been used for.

This shows the Polish control on the Polish side of the bridge. From my research, I found out that the bridge was only opened for visa-free travel between 1972 and 1980. Otherwise, traffic had to go via Świecko - unless you had special permission or an invitation from the other side.

As far as I know, the control shown on the picture was a sort of "first line" control - with full controls being carried out on the German side by both East Germany and Poland.

https://youtu.be/0sI0Amv3Z8k?t=353 - this shows the controls at the end of September 1990, just before German unification and the end of visa-free travel for Polish citizens. Traffic apparently dropped off heavily after that, with normal amounts of traffic only resuming in April 1991 when Poland regained visa-free access to Germany.

I don't have anything else to hand showing the actual controls prior to 1989, unfortunately. But I think they more or less looked like in the picture - except without car traffic.

Hungary considering building a fence on the border with Serbia to stop illegal immigration from Syria, Afghanistan etc.

Cars look like very early 90s. You can still spot a Trabant
2002 car fleet would be more modern, with probably only 20-30% cars like the ones in the photo.

I have never seen drivers respecting the EU/non-EU distinction.

You can spot Trabant and Wartburg in Hungary even today.

I once spotted a Trabant in Prague last summer, but it was clearly kept as a vintage vehicle to display outside a public establishment, and not for everyday use.

Illegal immigrants trying to get from France into the UK (the truck happens to be from my city).
