Who came up with the 'sitting in the front seat of a cab/taxi in Australia'? In my 64 years living in Aus' I've never heard such a thing.

Interesting customs. In Kenya my tribe the Kikuyus, expect you eat when you come to the home. It is rude to the woman of the home if you say no. Ahsante sana=Thank you very much.

I always sit in the front seat. It’s polite to be equal to the driver. The same in Ireland too. If I was a woman though, I’d sit in the back seat.

After reading this article, how can anyone believe this site originates from a place where English is spoken as a first language?
