IIRC that night was the day after Glasgow airport bomb and the border police had been told that one of the terrorists had got to Switzerland. They were giving all UK passports holders a good look crossing the borders that night, which is fair enough - there were pictures of UK suspects in their booths.

tbh i was stopped at the swiss border for about 30mins on the HET 06. The swiss police are just bastards

Maybe they're guarding their Gnomes and Nazi Gold still!

Anyway Turbo5's proposed route for 2008 avoids the place altogether - saves on the vignette and being ripped off on the Swiss Franc/Euro conversions at the bar.

Targeted by laser on autoroute, my road angel went mental so we slowed down and the French car in front of us got pulled instead
25 minutes of awkward questioning by local french police as to why we were filming with video cameras mounted on front and rear of car on the N85
25 minutes waiting while border control in Switzerland checked papers and put a sniffer dog round the car. Sniffer dog did not find the weed.

There's probably more that I've forgotten but those are the moments that spring to mind.

Well our group drove sensibly and carefully, and didnt encounter one problem. (like roundabouts) :thumbup:

I think the camera equipment will draw more problems to you though.. Also the 'stash' :lol: :lol:
