When you take a taxi where do you sit?

Front seat of course.
Back seat alone.
If it's me and someone else I'll tell him to go to the back and I'll take the front.
If it's me and someone else will both cram into the back.
I don't take taxis for that very reason - as I'm unsure what to do. ;)
Depends on the nationality of the driver.
I just hope the driver doesn't smell and I'll take the front.
Didnt you realize the driver has his front passenger seat pushed all the way up to tell you not to sit here?
If I go with 4 people then I have no choice and I will sit in the front glady.
Kick driver to back, and drive. (©henche)

Always had this question never knew what to do, sometimes it felt awkward just sitting in the front alone.
 Wonder what most of the DDF Community does as I'm sure they use taxis on every trip they take unless they rent a car.?

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Did you mean "in the back alone? "

In the front you're not alone.


And I personally usually sit in back.

This is a BP or Williamsburg question only. The back is where a passenger belongs unless there arent enough seats. I find that frum people locally are just unaware and think its normal to sit next to the driver. It isnt.

This is from my personal experience of driving car service.

Would this be any different while taking a ride with a מונית in israel?

My first time in a taxi alone (I was 15ish), the taxi pulls up I open the front passenger door, driver looks at me for a 10 beat and picks up the pile of papers sitting on the front seat and tossed them in the back. At that point I realized in a taxi, if you're alone, you sit in the back. It was a very awkward ride.

if you sit in the front ur basically asking the driver to give a class on all the reasons the economy is so good but business is so bad and how his 7 year old kid is the next president of america and  what he would do if he were in charge etc etc
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

The front seat is his office & kitchen
And when you sit there you are sitting on the dirty dishes piled up in his sink.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

What in the world?
Only reason to sit in the front is if there are 4 pax.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I sit in front when we have 3 passengers. In Vegas they will open both doors for 3 passengers.
