I dispute the premise of your question. (All images from a google Image Search for "Welcome to [State Name]") You can find examples for all 50 states at this site - note however that while all 50 states are represented, that list is far from exhaustive of all the designs and styles that can be found, depending upon which border crossing you're at. ...

Depending on which route you take you may pass through at least 2 or 3 Electronic toll collection systems you can find most of them on the Government Services Administration page.

The Amtrak Cascades service runs between Vancouver and Eugene in Oregon: You can find their timetable on their website, but a few of the services are actually buses. I'd suggest trying for the train rather than the bus, as the views can be better! You can save some money by booking in ...

It is true. The State of Washington has similar agreements with British Columbia, Germany and Korea. As long as your BC license is valid, you can follow the procedures same to the people holding an out-of-state US license. See here.
