What has changed between hitchhiking in the 60's and now?
People always talk about casually hitchhiking in the 60’s, 70’s, etc. As time went on people did it less. Now-a-days if you were suggest hitchhiking you would be greeted with a deep look of concern with implied craziness.
They’d say it’s not safe, that there’s serial killers and rapists. Same goes for picking someone up. So the question is, what’s changed since then and now?
My thought: The media. I’d love to hear yours.
