^ At rest areas? I can't imagine stopping them just like that on motorway. I bet they are after "suspicious" Balkan buses. I thought they would bribe me for driving 1 mile on motorway without sticker. They literally saw me without it, when I entered the motorway.

Yes, it's the international bridg(the only one in that area) over Guadiana river.
It connects portuguese motorway A22 with spanish motorway A49, although the bridge itself doesn't have motorway caracteristics (limited to 70km/h because of narrow lanes and lack of shoulders), although being 2x2.

because there used to be Kingdom of La Plata where Uruguay used to be eastern province (Banda Oriental), inhabitants called themselves Orientales and that was left in official name of country

Svinesund E6 Norway/Sweden

By far the most important border crossing into Norway, part of the E6 going from the southern corner of Sweden all the way to the north/eastern corner of Norway. No passport has been needed since 1952, but be careful not to bring too much alcohol into Norway....

Old bridge (1946) in front, new motorway bridge (2005) in the background

During my first visit to the USA about 20 years ago I was very surprised to see a border check point between California and Arizona on the I10 near Blythe.

Does that still exist? I don't remember anymore what exactly they checked there but I think you weren't allowed to take fruits with you or something like that.

I found it quite odd to have a border checkpoint between federal states.

Those USDA (US Department of Agriculture) 'California Customs' checkpoints are still there but (please correct me if I am wrong) from what I am aware of are open sporadically. They are on all major roads entering California and are there to prevent little agricultural nasties from getting into the state's insular and isolated farming regions. A surprising percentage of the USA's food comes from those areas and any unwanted exotic anythings getting into there could have grave consequences for the USA and the World's food supply.

Nice videos. Must cars also wait in line with those massive line of trucks at Korczowa?

What about that second border, is that bad pavement or what? Strange border station, is this a very small one?

No, as You can see, you can overtake them and there is a terminal only for cars.

BTW If you were wondering, the road shown at the beggining of the film is two-way, not one way

Indeed it looks strange. It's the road between Kraków and Poprad, they even have sign for Vienna.
