You're driving alone on the highway at night. A desperate looking person tries to flag you down. Do you stop??

I probably would, but I'm a dude so I'm less likely seen as a target for opportunists who would try something sinister - also I don't value my life that much

I don’t think so, but I do call 911 for them.

Unless they look hurt / like they need immediate assistance i would probably pass for my own safety. If i'm driving at night i'm probably gonna be by myself

I would probably be too wary to help them, but then I would feel guilty just incase they genuinely need help. If I'm with other people I would feel more safe

This has actually happened to me. I was driving home along a pitch dark country road at about 1am when I saw someone in the middle of the deserted road. (Luckily I was with a man because I really don’t know if I would have stopped if I’d been on my own, sadly.) It was an 18/19 year old guy who’d fallen off his pushbike and had blood pouring out of his head. He told us his name, address and phone number because he thought he was going to pass out. I gave him an old towel I had in the car to put on his head, we put his bike in a field then drove him to the hospital. I phoned his parents and we waited until his mother arrived before goi

I don't know, that's one of those things I don't know until it happens. It probably depends on how desperate he looks / what his reason is (if I get to know it) and how potentially threatening he looks.

This massively depends on where I am... I'm not getting robbed.

Depends. If I'm close to a town or there's a car nearby, I'll ignore them completely. Otherwise, I'd just open the door and ask them to come in

When they aren't waving a gun to stop me ....
