Strangely, hitching in groups almost works better than solo or in pairs. Don Nadie once left Quito in a group of eight, all drunk, at 3am and no problems catching a ride. Incredible. The best country for hitching in the Western Hemisphere.

The background color of the license plate varies according the key letter and identifies the type of service of the vehicle.
*If the key letter is A, Z or Q, the background color is orange and the vehicle is a [[bus]] or a [[taxi]].
*If the key letter is E, the background color is gold and the vehicle is property of the government.
*If the key letter is M, the background color is light green and the vehicle is property of a municipality.
*If the key letter is W, the background color is white-silver and the vehicle is property of the [[police]].
The rest of letters are for private, or ''particular'', vehicles. Their background color is white-silver.
