In a jeepney, where do you usually sit?

Ohh, sorry to say this but according to statistics those who sit beside the driver and those who sit at the back of the driver are the ones who often get killed or get mostly injured during car accidents! So because of this, I am very,very careful.. whenever I ride a jeepney... I always choose the middle seat at the back. I also do not seat at the end because the snatchers are targetting those who seat at that part. So we be better be careful!

i have the option to ride a jeepney or not when i come to work everyday. i can take a trike only and it would be really quick and im here already. Well anyway, when i ride a jeep, i prefer to be sitting close to the "entrance". i usually do not like to be on the inside of jeep and be the one to always reach for people's payments. he he

I sit right in front with the driver but I make sure that I'm the only one there or I let the other passenger sit between the driver and me so that in case of emergency, I can easily bail out. A lot of bandits appear when you least expected it so better be safe than sorry.

I used to sit at the end of the jeep, because it's easier to alight. Now I sit near the driver because in case of an accident, the driver would almost always try to save himself first, so that would put me in the safer zone :D (if there is such a thing as a "safe zone" in such a vehicle) Thanks for commenting in my discussion!

I usually sit at the very end because I can lean my body and I have some space where my body could relax. I don't sit in the middle because there's a tendency were commuters would fit their bodies even though there's no enough space. Hmp!

I also like t sit in front as so I cannot see other people riding the jeepney, I avoid being wiht a lot of people as much as possinle as I have this shortness of breathe when I am confined in a small place wih so many people. and that sitting in front can also avoid having to hand other passenger's fare to th driver which can be annoying most of the times.
