How To Stay Safe Whilst Taking A Taxi Ride
While riding a taxi, it is usually safer to sit
Well, I think the first to say is that it's important to make sure that you actually are getting into a taxi. If you don't use a reputable taxi firm, you don't necessarily know who it is that's giving you a lift. It may actually not be a taxi at all. So, the first thing I would say is that before you go out, think about your journey home at the end of it and get a number of a reputable taxi firm or minicab firm. Have that in your mobile if you have one. And actually, then at the end of your evening, call that company to come pick you up, rather than waiting on potluck in the street. Assuming that you use a taxi, my recommendation would be that you would go sit in one of the back seats of a taxi or minicab rather than in the front seat next to the driver. And make it clear where it is that you want to go. If there's a group of you, plan who's going to be dropped off first, and it's a good idea, as well, for peace of mind I think, to arrange to call each other up once people have been dropped off just so that one knows that everyone has got home safely.
