Would you pick up a hitchhiker?

If you were traveling with family if you had room in your vehicle would you pick up a hitchhiker?

  • I would not pick up a hitchiker but I would pick up a stranded motorist. I once was a stranded motorist and was very thankful that someone stopped to help me out.

  • Let me be more clear. I can come up with a scenario in my head where there was a "perfect storm" of situations that would lead to me and my family giving a ride to a stranger. But I have a very good imagination, and the chances of similar situations occurring are very rare.

    Under no circumstances that I can conceive would we pick up a "thumbs-out" hitchhiker as we drove down the road.

  • depends on the sutuation. I one time walked 17 miles in a blizzard wearing jeans and a light sweater and no one would give me a ride. Ive given rides before, only during extreme weather conditions or if their car was broken down.

  • I pick up hitchhikers whenever I see them. We're in a rural area, and it's seen as inconsiderate not to help someone in need.

    My husband was raised in the city, and he does NOT pick up hitchhikers.
