Hitching

Hitching is a popular way of moving from town to town, where hitchers, often students, line up on the main road just beyond the town or city limits and display a sign with their destination to hail a ride. That said, hitching is never entirely safe, and we don’t recommend it. Travellers who hitch should understand that they are taking a small but potentially serious risk.
