First stop should be the cultural police. Depending on what country you are in and your culture, is it appropriate for a woman to sit with a man unattended? If not, don’t sit in the front. Second stop is, would the driver be more comfortable if I kept my distance. The answer is YES! It’s a crazy world and every opportunity to avoid trouble needs to be evaluated. Sitting in the rear passenger side seat is the ideal from the driver’s perspective. It maintains maximum distance while allowing direct line of sight viewing. Sometimes if it is a long ride and the pax has shown themselves to be worthy, I will invite them to sit in the front. It’s on a case by case basis though. The front seat laid back is a lot more comfortable for a quick snooze.
Ok, when I call an Uber and it’s empty, do I sit in the front with the driver, or in the back alone?

I have been a ride share driver for almost three years. While I like the ride share concept, I truly hate it's implementation and the way Uber and Lyft have so little regard for their work force. I am for the little guy. I seek to right injustice and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. It's usually the ones you find hardest to love that need it the most. Please enjoy my opinion and if you like (or even if you just welcome the effort), an upvote is a digital pat on the back and is most appreciated. I invite you to read my other comments and upvote them as well. Thanks
