Florida has agricultural inspection stations located in close proximity to the Georgia and Alabama borders on all three interstate highways coming into the state, Interstates 75, 95 and 10. In fact, Chris, I spent Thanksgiving weekend in the Jacksonville FL area and took a ride on Interstate 95 over the St. Mary's River into Georgia; on the way I noticed one of Florida's agricultural inspection stations.

Unlike California (and Arizona too) where everyone has to stop, Florida only requires the following types of vehicles to stop at the agricultural inspection station for inspection:

Trucks and trailers
Rented trucks and trailers
Commercial and cargo vans

Trucks that have a PrePass transponder are allowed to bypass the inspection station dependent on what is being transported (the driver must follow the signals from the PrePass transponder). However, if the truck is carrying any agriculture, aquaculture or horticulture then the truck must stop for inspection regardless of PrePass signal.

While American states cannot set up checkpoints for the purpose of immigration and/or customs, constitutionally American states are allowed to set up checkpoints at their state lines for the purpose of enforcing an American state's agricultural inspection laws. Even Australian states as you mentioned are allowed to set up checkpoints for the same purpose.

On another occasion, with more traffic, they waved me through before I even came to a complete stop. The same thing happened every time I drove through one of the immigration checkpoints near the Mexican border.

I crossed California borders many times and was never stopped. The same with Florida or any other state.

We were once stopped in the middle on New Mexico but it was temporary immigration control as it's close to Mexican border. They have this permanent off line structures where they sometimes redirect all traffic for control.
We just had to show one of our Polish passports and were clear to go.

Sorry for OT but I really like Slovenian translations for e-mail and link: e-pošta and povezava.

We just use e-mail and link.

Btw, but yeah, it is rare but we also use "e-pošta".

Yea, Tijuana is on the right.

BTW, 'San Isidro' is a neighborhood in the City of San Diego. The City of San Diego covers an amazing amount of land area.

It is a part of the City of San Diego that is connected to the rest of the city by a defined strip of water that runs north-south through San Diego Bay.

That's weird.

On left river bank is Slovak village Červený Kláštor and on the opposite one is Polish village Sromowce Niżne -



This path is the border between Poland and Slovakia. Poland is on the left side -

Was there border post before Schengen? Do you have some photos from that period?


It's totally weird in, for example, Czech-Slovak borders that in 15 years they didn't have borders, then they did, and finally no borders again. It's the most weird in villages and towns separated by small river or road.

There was a small booth at the end of the boat trip, around 12 km far from tihis picture. That bridge was built later, still before Schengen, but I guess there was no booth just some police control, because it was just a border for pedestrians. Anyway where is the bridge located, you can wade across the river, as the water isn't deep in that point.

A border dispute led to the Mexican–American War, which began in 1846 and lasted for two years. The Mexican–American War was an armed conflict between the United States and Mexico from 1846 to 1848 in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas, which Mexico considered part of its territory despite the 1836 Texas Revolution
American forces invaded and conquered New Mexico, California, and parts of what is currently northern Mexico. Another American army captured Mexico City, forcing Mexico to agree to the sale of its northern territories to the U.S.


When the president of Mexico Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna suspended the 1824 Mexican Constitution, civil war spread across the country, and three new governments declared independence: the Republic of Texas (all Texas, parts of present-day New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming), the Republic of the Rio Grande (all Coahuila, Nuevo León, Tamaulipas and South Texas, Capital Laredo Texas) the and the Republic of Yucatán (All Yucatan, Quintana Roo and Campeche).


Texas successfully achieved independence and was annexed by the United States. A border dispute led to the Mexican–American War, which began in 1846 and lasted for two years; the War was settled via the "Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo", which forced Mexico to give up nearly half of its land to the U.S., (All Texas, California, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, parts of Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma). A much smaller transfer of territory in parts of southern Arizona and New Mexico — the Gadsden Purchase — occurred in 1854. The Caste War of Yucatán, the Mayan uprising that began in 1847, was one of the most successful modern Native American revolts. Maya rebels, or Cruzob, maintained relatively independent enclaves until the 1930s
The Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo also ensured safety of existing property rights of Mexican citizens living in the transferred territories. Despite assurances to the contrary, the property rights of Mexican citizens were often not honored by the U.S. in accordance with modifications to and interpretations of the Treaty. The U.S. also agreed to take over 3.25 million dollars (equivalent to $82.2 million today) in debts that Mexico owed to American citizens.


Nuevo Laredo is a city located in the Municipality of Nuevo Laredo in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. Nuevo Laredo was part of the territory of the original settlement of Laredo (now in Texas) which was founded in 1755 by the Spaniard Don Tomás Sánchez in the northern part of the Rio Grande. In 1847, the Guadalupe Hidalgo Treaty divided the territory attached to Laredo between Texas and Mexico. New Laredo was founded on May 15, 1848, by seventeen Laredo families who wished to remain Mexican and therefore moved to the Mexican side of the Rio Grande. They identified with Mexico, its history and cultural customs, and decided to keep their Mexican citizenship. The founders of New Laredo even took with them the bones of their ancestors so they continued to rest in Mexican ground

Why did they change the border just because of the river?

The river changed its water-course after the floodings.
The border was in the middle of the old course. Thats all, he is just making fun.
