When catching a cab on your own, do you:
Sit in the front with the driver?
Sit in the back seat?
And, why do you choose to do so?

Random question - catching a taxi

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

Sit in the back. I try to discourage conversation!

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 back. I'm being driven by a stranger it feels safer and I like my personal space!

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?
