Hitchhiking is the best way to see the world for young people (Сочинения ЕГЭ английский язык)
13 из 14 Оценка эксперта внизу
Many different ways of travelling provided for young people have been widely discussed in recent years. Some individuals claim that there is no better way to see the world for youngsters than hitchhiking, while others hold an opposite view.
In my judgment, hitchhiking may not be defined as the best way to travel for adolescents as it has a big deal of disadvantages. To begin with, getting in a car with a complete stranger is very dangerous. According to the statistics, most young people who suffered from any sexual assault were the victims of the unknown drivers. In addition, hitchhiking may not be described as a reliable way to set off on a journey. For instance, it could take so long before someone picks you up.
On the other hand, there are some young people who choose to consider hitchhiking as a way to see the world that has no negative aspects at all.
They prove their point of view saying that hitchhiking is completely free, which surely makes it the best way to travel.
To a certain extent, it is right, but I still incline more to the opinion that your safety comes first and you should not choose hitchhiking only because there is no need to pay for it.
Taking into consideration all mentioned above, I still think that being a hitchhiker means being in an extreme peril. This way of travelling may lead to various consequences including sexual assault, rape and so on.
