I did when I was in high school in the late 70s, but never when I was alone. The trips were usually 5-7 miles.

Yes, in my teenage years, that is the late 60's, before I had a car. My trip was about 3 miles to go to work and knew most everyone in town. I would not do it nor would I pick up someone today unless I knew them.

Summer 1972 I had a paid internship at Kodak in Rochester but lived in Pittsford. Bus service from Pittsford into town was abysmal on the weekend so I hitchhiked into town.
