If the hour is late as you are crossing the border, you may be stopped and charged extra fees or involved into a conflict. If so, just stay at a hotel next to the border and wait until morning. In the morning other border officers will do their shift and the conflict may be over. Besides, crossing the border is easier in the daytime.
