That's unfortunate. Apparently things at the border have cooled down now, or so I've heard. I remember police check points outside Ovcarani where they would stop traffic and ask the driver for ID (for both locals and visitors), but the check lasted only 2 minutes. If they ask at the border where you are heading to, best answer to say is Thessaloniki.
