Actually, hitchhiking is not covered in the 1st Ammendment.

Peaceful assembly would imply safe assembly - for the same reason you can't organize a march down the middle of a causeway or freeway.

By strict definition, hitchhiking appears to illegal in Utah. However, many people successfully hitchhike through every year. According to digihitch.com , hitchhiking is technically legal if:

A person is WALKING purposefully while FACING TRAFFIC either on a SIDEWALK or (if not available) the OUTSIDE edge of the highway SHOULDER while CLEAN & SOBER and NO SIGNS were present at the entrance of the highway prohibiting pedestrians.

41-6a-1009. Use of roadway by pedestrians -- Prohibited activities. 3) Where a sidewalk or a shoulder is not available, a pedestrian walking along or on a highway shall

a.)walk as near as practicable to the outside edge of the roadway; and

b.)if on a two-way roadway, walk only on the left side of the roadway facing traffic

4) A person may not sit, stand, or loiter on or near a roadway for the purpose of soliciting from the occupant of a vehicle

a.)a ride
