Hitchhiking reborn

I remember when hitchhiking was common. It was never recommended, but lots of young people did it.

Nowadays, it’s exceedingly rare to see hitchhikers and rarer still that people would consider letting them in their car.

But there’s something new happening, where hitchhikers would feel safe and so would the drivers.

Check out what is happening in Lawrence, Kansas. Here’s an article about it in Smithsonian magazine and there’s a video on the webpage.
