It used to be that you could tell where someone was from simply by listening to the way they talked. For instance residents from the South have a low-slung southern drawl and tend to draw out words, where New Yorkers are known to have more of a gruff, sharp accent. The point is a persons accent can be a dead giveaway as to where they are from. An individuals driving habits are another way to single out a persons home state and region of occupancy. If you’re in California for example, don’t be surprised if you see a person with both hands on the wheel, eyes shut with both feet on the brake while at the same time quivering in terror. This is dead giveaway that the person is from Ohio, but driving in California. The below is a list of 10 dead giveaways that will help you determine where the person driving in front of you is from.

    Santa Fe or Taos New Mexico driver:

    Spotless luxury SUV or decrepit Volvo. Both hands in “Om” meditation position, eyes closed or glazed over in contemplation of the universe. String tie with silver and turquoise clasp, loudly colored “western” clothes. New Age music faintly billowing out of $5000 stereo system. Rear of car plastered with stickers supporting Tibet, Apple computers and lengthy quotes from favorite guru. Organic chai soy nonfat latte in lap. Car wandering vaguely in summer or skidding wildly in winter.

    Southern New Mexico driver:
    One hand on small chain steering wheel, one hand on Uzi under front seat. Decrepit Chevrolet or Ford with block long smokescreen. Wheels and tires about 5 sizes too small. Gas tank dragging on ground. Immense fuzzy dice hanging from rear view mirror. Traveling at about 20 MPH regardless of speed limit. Bone rattling hip hop blaring from trunk sized speakers.
