In August 2010, I (Jessica) headed with a friend from Melbourne, Australia to a semester abroad in LA. The college emailed us to state that some students had offered free rides from the airport. We accepted, wondering what kind of a weirdo would actually offer to drive a friend to the airport, let alone someone they don't even know. We agreed to be polite and then abandon this weird stranger unless of course, they murdered us first. The first rule of travel is America = guns. This is why I am always polite on US freeways.
