Mar 24th 2012 4:17PM I actually think washington dc is the northern-most "southern" city. it sure was back in the 1950s. Richmond's southern scale is much more in tune with Charleston and Savannah. Nashville and Atlanta are about as Southern as New York.
Jul 17th 2010 1:15PM Virginia used to be a much better driving state- but we have so many people from out-of-state (mostly northerners) who are very aggressive drivers. I will say though in Northern Virginiia, people are so used to sitting in traffic lights, they dont honk as much as they are now in Central VA and Hampton Roads. People used to almost NEVER honk here in Richmond, but we have all these Northerners now and they honk right at you if you dont go right when the light changes. Anyone who takes Driver's Ed knows you should wait at least 10 seconds after a light changes in case someone crashes a light. Also you dont honk at pedestrians when you make a right. They have the right of way! Driving is a priviledge , not a right!
Mar 24th 2008 1:37PM I disgaree with this. The line should be moved up to around Fredericksburg. Richmond is a TRULY SOUTHERN city, and its barely included. I think its flawed.
The Mason Dixon line will always be the line between North and South for me. I grew up in Northern Virginia and I am a born and bred Southerner.
Richmond is more Southern than Atlanta or Nashville.
