    Default Random question - catching a taxi

    When catching a cab on your own, do you:

    Sit in the front with the driver?

    Or

    Sit in the back seat?

    And, why do you choose to do so?

    Sit in the front because I'd feel weird sitting in the back. I like to have a chat to taxi drivers.

    I sit in the front but mostly I catch cabs home from work after finishing an afternoon shift so it's late (11pm). I do so mostly for my safety, I like to make eye contact, see the meter, see the drivers ID etc, plus I also like to chat to the driver about whatever.

    Always sit in the front if i know the driver otherwise its always the back. I know most of the local drivers though and on a friendly basis with them(if they see me walking with a heap of groceries or they are heading past my way, they will just pick me up and drop me home.

    Always the front. Chat to the driver, see where you're going.
    I remember reading once that it's a rather Australian thing to do, coming from our egalitarian culture. Apparently it's not the done thing overseas?
