"Young people feel strongly chagrined(at their deaths) when they cannot meet people they love. As they want to convey their bitterness, they may have chosen taxis, which are like private rooms, as a medium to do so."
I could understand expressing bitterness towards death. However, the ghost in this situation expressed more sadness (in my opinion) than bitterness.
This is a phenomenon that could be linked to a very tragic and violent death such as a tsunami, and an earthquake. I would like to finish by saying that these stories of phantom hitch-hikers and/or passengers are not exactly uncommon.

Like I said the spirit is the real us. The jar, not.
I don't know why some see shadows, shimmers, orbs, apparitions, full figures. I can only base my observation on my own very subjective, personal experience.
Over my entire life time I have on (but few) occasions seen ghosts that were so human I thought they were human until I later found out they were notorious ghosts.
They had clothes, too. One was carrying a tool box, another had a cane. Go figure.
Further: Thats why these reports of cabbies at first thinking their fares were 'real people' clicks with me. I can relate to that. One day I'll
do a thread, maybe.

Alternatively, this research by Yuka Kudo could prove that around 7 in 100 Japanese taxi drivers like to pull university student's legs.
