the author of the video actually writes in the comments that he damaged his direction (not sure if this is the right English word) on that road...

It's interesting, but probably not so very rare. I've discovered one on the SLO-HR border, one on the SLO-I border (inner Schengen though) and one on the SLO-HR border that used to be between the checkpoints.

and.... it is not a border crossing, nor there is any borderstone or so.... but glancing about borders I think it should be our favourite point

Russia quite near to tripoint with China and Northern Korea

Not realy
in Romania a ultra deep pothole is when the whole car fits in

The Turkish-Armenian border is closed since the fall of the Soviet Union, as Turkey supported Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabak war and still denies the Armenian genocide, so Armenia and Turkey don't have diplomatic relationships.

Imeno - Zavrč has railroad crossing just after Slovenian booths. However,, I think that line is inactive.

Can you post a link, because you're talking about two different border crossings 45 km apart?

But that's not between the checkpoints (and yeah, that line isn't used between Imeno and Harmica).

Any news about the Croatian border crossings this summer? Tourism is way down in Turkey and other traditional spots, so I wonder if Croatia has had even more carnage than normal?

Nothing special from Slovenia so far, 5-km jam on A4 by Ptuj, but it's just the beginning. Anyway, better to ask in the Croatian thread.

CG-6 Andorran road to Os de Civis has now a signal pointing the border (nothing in the opposite side).

AFAIK it is the only non-Schengen border without custom booths

BTW are Lutepa (ET) besides border?. Are they fenced?

http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/new...food-medicine/

The border between Colombia and Venezuela had been reopened just for a day and thousands of Venezuelans crossed it to buy food and medicine that are very difficult to buy in Venezuela, due to shortages causated by the lack of a free market imposed by the socialist regime. The border was closed last year by Venezuelan government to prevent smuggling.
It seems that the Venezuelan regime is acting like former Eastern bloc countries, in terms of controlling economy and limiting freedom of travel.
