"To ride shotgun is to sit in the front passenger seat when riding in a car or other vehicle. It is a phrase commonly and mostly heard in the United States and Canada, but also in Australia and New Zealand. Due to the influence of American popular culture it is also heard in several European countries such as Iceland, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom, as well as other countries with large English-speaking populations such as South Africa. In Mexico it is commonly heard in the derived forms "shot" or "shotto" making a phonetic allusion to the original phrase." MORE HERE
