We found a great thread on Reddit that asked about the unwritten rules of Maine's largest city.

While we've recently delved into an unwritten rules list involving Maine as a whole, this list gets more specific when it comes to The Forest City.

This list of rules covers just about everything, from how to drive to how to dress. And you probably know a bunch of them already, especially if you're local to the area.

You know, things like watching out for the light on State Street going into Congress Street because it changes in an instant, or the fashion advice for when you're walking around downtown.

How about some traffic flow tips? The list has got it.

You want 'em. We got 'em.

And be sure to share other unwritten rules we didn't cover. There's definitely more out there that locals should know!
