While conducting some research for my forthcoming trade book tentatively titled The Consuming Instinct: What Juicy Burgers, Ferraris, Pornography, and Gift Giving Reveal About Human Nature (Prometheus Books, 2011), I came across a study authored by Nicolas Guéguen on the likelihood of a female hitchhiker being picked up, by either a male or female driver, as a function of her breast size.

The next poll should be something along the lines of "How many men who pick up large breasted women go on to rape/murder these women or otherwise become serial killers".

I'm sure having an ample breast size helps, but hitchhiking is so dangerous today that any woman who attempts it has to be very desperate.

A guy who genuinely stops to help a lady (or any person - male or female!) in distress is a good person. It's just creepy and borderline serial killer stuff when guys pick somebody up solely for their physical attributes. Then, the pick-up becomes for HIS benefit - not for the benefit of the distressed person.
