Inspired by another thread by "The Hitchhiker", I've decided to make this poll. Thought this sub-forum would be the best one to ask in as it's safe to assume that the majority of you drive.

Personally I wouldn't. The only time I would even begin to consider it is if it was absolutely pissing down outside. Otherwise, I'd just sit on my ass believing that the guy would pull out a knife as soona s he got into my car.

I wouldn't, I almost feel bad, but I value my personal safety even more.

i'm hitchhiking to morocco over easter, so i'd hope someone will!!

from speaking to other people, its amazing how reluctant british people are to give a lift compared to our european counterparts. apparently in iceland you are almost expected to, due to lack of cars and long distances.

I don't have a car or know how to drive, so... I guess it depends how far he wants to go. I don't think I could give someone a piggy-back ride for more than a few hundred metres or so.

If I did drive, I'd maybe pick someone up if they looked harmless. But they'd have to be very harmless looking.

I would like to but my parents have drilled it into my head that it's really dangerous, they were shocked that I'd even consider it.

Maybe, leaning towards no. Probably would consider it if I was with someone, and the person in question was a very petite, very harmless looking young girl.
