one of the hardest states of the [[United States of America|USA]] to hitch in , particularly the Southern part of it. Nobody will stop for you, and the cops will be very nasty if you get on the freeway.
== Law ==
46.2-929. Pedestrians soliciting rides.
"Roadway" means that portion of a highway improved, designed, or ordinarily used for vehicular travel, exclusive of the shoulder.
Basically , hitchhiking on the shoulder is not in violation of this statute and should be legal .
== Experiences ==
''I am hitching through Virginia as I write this from Lynchburg and have had a decent experience so far. My rate of catching rides has been about equal to the national average, maybe a little better, and so far I have yet to have a police encounter.''
