No, why? Germany and France can check, if they wish, the rest of us don't care.

I think that this one is Seat 600, and fi(ć/č)o was Zastava 750. Nevertheless all of them are Fiats 600 anyway

I happend to find an older photo taken on the border between Italy and San Marino. This is the sign when entering San Marino from the west. There is hardly traffic there, since the most of the traffic comes from the north (from Rimini)

Picture taken in April 2002. There was no check on this road (not even a control point!). On the road from Rimini there was e border station but no checks there as well.

Why them? They are to patrol Italy's territorial waters.

No, they are finance and custom police. They chceck everything regarding goods, taxes and money. When there was the panic about the crash of banks, they were checking italians going to San Marino, if they don't carry big amounts of money to save in San Marinians banks

Looks like something the local council put up, because it's not very correct. 11 six-pointed stars when it should be 12 five-pointed stars.

The one fron DDR is great - Vor dem Betreten wird gewarnt - You're warned not to tresspass - like completely different world (which was true)

The last one is fake most likely.
