Man hitches a ride on the back of a taxi to avoid paying in The Philippines

This cheeky fare dodger was seen travelling for free - by kneeling on the back of a taxi.

The man was carrying a shopping bag while he knelt against the rear bumper and clung to the hood.

He then jumped off at a gasoline station in Manila, the Philippines last month (March 21).

Shocked motorist Patrick Igno witnessed the incident.

He said: ''This did not look like the safest or most comfortable way to ride a taxi. It's definitely the cheapest but I don't think the taxi driver will be happy about it.''
