My dd doesn't have a carseat because I drive a taxi

She has one in her dad's car but not mine because I drive a taxi. I can't keep one in there obviously, and I don't drive very far without it, but I come straight from work to pick her up at school and even if I had one, I couldn't put it in the car. That's my confession.

I took my DD 30 miles home from the air port once without a car seat because the airport lost it and we had no way to get home. I felt awful but I literally had no other choice. The taxi driver didnt seem to care at all, and we got her a new car seat that evening.

Most people ride in the taxi without a car seat. I've only had one person put one in ever. It's not the law for a child to be in one while in a taxi

Wow! I was just in another taxi post and things have REALLY changed. I have driven since 2002.

I  never rode in Taxi without a carseat. Its not the law in NY but I would rather be safe than sorry....especially the way these cab drivers drive especially in the city, lol

They have carriers sometimes, but nothing to snap them in to. I don't get tons of people riding int he cab with infants, but if you're walking around the city, chances are you aren't lugging a car seat with you. If anything they have a stroller that we just put in the trunk. I've picked people up for the airport and put the car seat in the trunk. lol

Maybe if you call a can and you're prepared, but if you're walking around the city how do you tote a car seat with you?
