Johnson City

In May of 2019, I was trying to hitch out of Johnson City with a friend. Probably the most police cars I’ve ever seen in the span of an hour drove by us without stopping while we were thumbing, until eventually one stopped and the officer told me that he was off duty, but hitchhiking is illegal in Johnson City. Given that none of the on-duty officers stopped us, they may not care. Johnson City has a very high crime rate, so the police probably have better things to do than harass hitchhikers, but just keep in mind that it’s not a particularly friendly place to hitch out of.
