North Dakota is a state of the United States of America. ...and, oh yeah! you can hitchhike here! Though it's frigid in the winter, and the folks sometimes seem a bit suspicious, the folks that pick you up, if they're not local farmers, will often take you for long rides, as there's a lot of empty road in N.D. beautiful sky. Aw-haw. Grand Forks' nice.
North Dakota Code 39-10-34 - Pedestrian soliciting ride or business
- 1. No person may stand in a roadway for the purpose of soliciting a ride
Title 39 Motor Vehicles. Chapter 39-01 Definitions and General Provisions.
- 68. "Roadway" means that portion of the highway designed, improved, or ordinarily used for vehicular traffic, exclusive of the berm or shoulder.
As with most states, stay off the traveled portion of the road and you will be fine.
Note:All Federal "Parks, Forests, and public land" prohibit hitchhiking under the Code of Federal Regulations Title 36 section 4.31: Hitchhiking or soliciting transportation is prohibited except in designated areas and under conditions established by the superintendent.
This is often amended by the superintendents of different Federal Districts making hitchhiking legal in places where this section is amended. The following are some such places:
Theodore Roosevelt National Park CFR 4.31 has not been amended here, so hitchhiking is illegal
I've only been through once and like most people went straight through on the I90, but rides were relatively easy to catch.Thewindandrain 06:11, 25 September 2012 (CEST)
