Cool stuff. I wanted to take that route from Rome to Nice, but there was a connecting station that let me to change my mind and take a plane. I sort of wanted to be safe. Maybe next time.

This is not true. I am crossing this border regularly with my Finnish registered car. In declaration I don't write anything except information related to my car and myself. I can use car inside of Russia up to 1 month (maybe for Finnish citizens it is not limited), if you want to use longer, you should pay tax deposit (a few thousands euro), This is done so because import tax for second hand cars in Russia is very high and there is a risk that the car will suddenly "disappear" at wast Russian territories without paying import tax.
For Russian registered car you don't need to fill any papers nowadays.
I crossed the borders tens of times and longest awaiting period was about 1.5 hours, although my friends once waited for 5 hours at 31th of December

The former border between France and Savoy (Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia).

Although not an international border crossing, these 4 snaps are of the Victoria/NSW State Border on Hwy no.1. It is located in the southeastern corner of Australia, an area where the state border is not defined by the Murray River, but by a straight line. The border is in the middle of forest.

Oh yeah, I remember that border very well. There was a sign 'Welcome to Victoria' and all of a sudden another sign prohibiting bringing fruit into Victoria, so we stopped and ate all our bananas and oranges. (we knew about these restrictions, but weren't thinking about them at that moment)

Yep. The Australian border (airports ) is particularly complicated. You aren't allowed to bring pretty much anything "weird" into Australia. There're big posters at airports saying "Declare or beware".

I understand the restriction on bringing fruits in Australia from another country, but I can't understand why you can't go with bananas from one Australian state to another one.

In the U.S., about 30 years ago, there was an epidemic (if that's the right word) of a type of fly that can severely damage fruit crops. I don't know if it was only in California, or if California was afraid of it getting in, (or it started there, they eradicated it, and they don't want it to get back in...) but since then, I believe California prohibits fruit from entering the state. I have never driven into California from another state, so I'm not speaking first-hand, but I've heard they actually stop cars at the state border to make sure they're not bringing fruit in. Someone who's experienced this can correct me on this....

That said, as a general rule I'd think border inspections within the U.S. would be unconstitutional, unless the Federal government authorized it (interstate commerce is something the Federal level rather than the states has jurisdiction over, and the courts have been pretty consistent about invalidating state laws that interfere with it). If California is really doing this, someone who knows the law or the history of the issue can correct me on that too....

There are agricultural inspection points at California's borders.

Australia is as big as a continent, in fact it is a continent. Besides that, diseases and other problems do not keep to borders. Victoria is one of the most productive agricultural states of Australia, with nearly all its surface making agriculture possible. In other states this is much less.

Do all cars stop (entering California)?

I don't think so, I think it is set up like a weigh station (truck scales).

True, but there're many (usually not operating) checkpoints within Queensland. I suppose the most famous is this one between Western- and South Australia in the middle of nowhere.
