Younger drivers can speak usually have at least a basic level of English. Hitchhiking is easy but for young couple or two girls is more easier.
'''Hitchhiking directly on motorways and expressways is not allowed at highways and motorways - see map'''; pedestrians are not permitted to walk on these roads for safety reasons. Thus hitchhiking typically involves standing on onramps or at petrol stations on the motorway. There While it is not suggested that one hitchhike on highways, actual confrontations with police are rare, and in the unlikely event that a police car does stop, it is best to ask somebody at gas station or service station. Hitchhiker isnt protected by drivers insurance.

== Border crossing ==
Czech Republic and all neighbouring countries are Schengen members, so there are no regular border controls any more, though German police often check the documents and backpacks of hitchhikers near the Czech border. Some border crossings remain good places to get an onward lift.
