Helping others is something we all strive to do, but if helping someone put ourselves in danger we usually aren't very helpful. I was taught from a very young age that it is unsafe to let strangers into your car for any reason. That being said good things can happen from picking up a stranger on the side of the road. This weekend, DAVE MATTHEWS was stranded on the side of the road when his bike got a flat tire.  Fortunately, two fans on their way to the show stopped, realized it was Dave, and gave him a ride.  Dave thanked them by inviting them to dinner, and giving them front-row tickets. This goes to show it might not be a bad idea to pick up a hitchhiker.
