The Slice

Hitchhiking used to be fairly common

I admit that's going back a ways, maybe about 40 years or more.

But it's true. Hitching a ride used to be an almost mainstream activity.

What's your theory about why that changed?

A) We became more aware of the deviants in our midst. B) Society embraced paranoia. C) Too many movies or TV shows depicted bad things happening to hitchhikers or to the motorists who pick them up. D) We became convinced that one out of 10 strangers is a serial killer E) More people working from home. F) The percentage of dangerous lunatics in the population has grown exponentially. G) Other.
