NOTE: Accepting a ride from a stranger can put you in danger. Regardless of how polite the
person may be, if they insist they are headed in the same direction or if they offer you something (e.g. money, ice cream, puppy), the Santa Clara Police Department recommends that children or adults do not get in a vehicle with an individual they do not know. While there are trusting people in the world, its not worth taking a chance.
