The San Diego Highwayman

5 mins


When he was 16, Thomas Weller drove his car into a snowbank and was rescued by a passerby who refused payment, only asking that Weller pay it forward by helping others. He took that message to heart and has spent a half century patrolling the highways and byways of Southern California to help stranded motorists. He’s been dubbed “The Highwayman” for his selfless Good Samaritan deeds. Over the decades, he’s also handed out thousands of cards with simple instructions to continue the kindness. Like a one-man pebble, he sends out ripples of goodness into the universe.
