Almost always the front. I don't like them feeling like they're not even there, if that makes sense. It's kind of like when I worked in retail and people would not interact with me at all; it made me feel like I was just a machine and not valued as a real person.
I have sat in the back sometimes, like if I have luggage and they open the door for me, they usually open the back so I just sit in the back. Also when I catch taxi's with friends (which is rare) I would sit all in the back together.

Used to be strictly the front but after a couple of unsavoury experiences I'm now strictly the back. I don't feel great about it but feel too uncomfortable in the front these days.

Always in the back.
I've worked in a sexual assault service, I'm not comfortable in the front.

Do people who sit in the back also sit in the back with female drivers? Or is it only with males and only then because of the risk of being assaulted?

I've never had a woman cabbie nor had a client who was assaulted by a woman cabbie.

I would sit in the back regardless of the drivers gender. However it's not a safety issue for me, it's a 'not wanting to talk' issue!

Always in the back on the opposite side to the driver.
Bad taxi experience once and a policeman told me afterwards that was the safest spot in the vehicle - safety from the driver anyway.
Don't know how true it is but I've always done it since
