If I'm riding alone in the front seat of an Uber, can I sit in the front seat?

Sometimes I get motion sickness sitting in the backseat of a car so being up front helps that. Would my Uber driver be disturbed if I sat in the front seat, like taking over his personal space? Also, I don't want my driver getting the wrong idea if it's a male.

    as a driver i personally wouldn't mind. having conversations sometime is nice. don't just sit there on your phone though

    If you are already sitting in the front seat of the car, sure, I guess you can sit in the front seat.

    it depends if the driver will have conversation with you, i've had some talkative drivers and others who just want to get me where i need to go and that's it

      one time i had a driver who seemed insulted that i didn't sit in the front seat when it was just me - it always depends on the driver!

    idk if i would want to sit in the front seat like that. it makes the rider/passenger relationship a little difficult since you're making things awkard for both of you
