Letter to the Editor: Hitchhiking vs. giving a lift after a car breakdown


Last updated 4/11/2018 at 3:51pm

To the Editor:

Don’t pick up strangers. Yes, but are there exceptions?

In Odessa, if I see a friend walking, I will pull over and ask if they are just walking or need a ride, especially if I see a woman carrying grocery bags. I pull over and offer her a ride even if I don’t know her. None of my men friends ever said yes to a ride.

What about off the highway? If I see a car parked on the side of the road and then see someone walking, yes I am going to stop and ask if they need help. If I see one bicyclist or one motorcyclist, I will stop to check.

No, I don’t pick up hitch-hikers.
