    50+ years doing truck insurance......so I've actually seen the claims and payments......clearly not so much now days, but back in the 80's and 90's it wasn't un-common to see.

    Called the insurance company we use, asked if passengers are allowed in all 8 trucks. She assured me that they were, so long as they were their seat belt.

    Hey I run North east mainly NJ and NYC. We got tons of drugs addicts here. I ain’t picking up any hitchhikers in this area.

    Sorry for late response. there are so many responds, I can't catch up all sometimes. To answer your questions, my group is doing a study about the transportation system, vs. shipping issues, and we particularly want to improve the driver's life on the road.

    No I wouldn't, haven't, and never will.. Too many things can go wrong in a hitchhiker scenario.
