We have systematically studied the electron transport in the vicinity of the transitions from the ν=1 and 1/3 quantum Hall liquids to the Hall insulator, in a wide variety of samples. Our results indicate that the diagonal resistivity at the transition is universal and close to the quantum unit of resistance e2/h.
