Translation:I am before you.

I suppose it is because something can be before you without necessarily facing you? Which of the two words implies "facing"?
There was a comedian in the US, from the deep South, called Brother Dave Gardner. He had a couple of comedy albums in around 1961. One story was about a motorcyclist who gets angry because a slow truck in front of him has a bumper sticker that says "I might be slow but I'm ahead of you." He passes the truck and crashes. Grim humor. I wonder if that Israeli bumper sticker came from Gardner. The Motorcycle Story and others are on YouTube.
I ANSWERED "I AM BEFORE YOU.", BUT MY ANSWER WAS MARKED WRONG, AND THE CORRECT SOLUTION WAS BOTH "I AM BEFORE YOU." AND "I AM IN FRONT OF YOU."
AT THIS STAGE IN THE COURSE, ARE WE SUPPOSED TO PROVIDE BOTH ALTERNATIVES IF THERE ARE TWO POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS?
