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)

Didn't we already establish that if there are no available seats in the back then you go to the front?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Why would you want to sit in the front with the driver? It's bad enough when they keep trying to make conversation, after repeatedly being given 1 word answers to shut them up. I'm paying for a ride, not a travel buddy

Say you’re a female :) & there’s 1 male sitting in back. Where are you sitting ?

Ever so casually on his lap.

Added.
 This is only an option if your a terrorist or if you've been watching lots of TV shows/movies lately. ;)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Got a ride from an isreali monit driver this Thursday and asked him this very question,he told me that he personally thinks it's a disgusting rude thing, it's invading his personal space, as he explained that he's used to having space and room next to him, not having to drive with both arms stuffed to one side to avoid hitting the passenger.
 And offering the passenger the whole back to have his own personal space but then he comes to sit in the front he found to be very un-polite,
 Doubt you will hear this response from every taxi(monit) driver as the real Israelis enjoy having company and couldn't give a hoot as long as their making money. ;)

Then why not just keep front passenger door locked ?

I guess because were sticking with the assumptions that it's normal for the passenger to go in the back and not take shot gun.
 So for most humans he's not worried and doesn't have this on his mind thinking maybe there's this one guy who will decide to come sit next to me.

Even in an Uber pool, still the back.

You'd be surprised how many drivers (Chinese, Russian, muslim) motion me to sit in front in such a scenario.

They're hoping for an out-of-Court settlement some day no doubt :)
