    What do you call in English when...?

    Hi Teachers,
    What do you call in English when you ask taxi driver to stop the cab to get you off from the cab?
    What is the appropriate verb or phrase for that usage?
    Sorry for my simple question,. I am just new in Learning English.
    Thanks a lot.

    'Stop here, please.'

    'Let me out here, please.'

    'This is far enough, thank you. I'll walk the rest of the way.'


    A better title would have been Stop the cab.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Thanks a lot for your informative answers. But do you think "please pull over" is suitable and correct?

    Yes.

    Please note that you didn't need to quote my reply back to me. Nobody wants to read all that again.
