I was in another group and it provoked a question.
If you don't own a vehicle and rely on public transportation to get somewhere and have to take a taxi one day, do you carry a carseat with you or something?
I called my city's 311 service and they said it's not against the law for a child to ride in a taxi cab without a carseat or booster, but everytime I travel in a taxi (I often do, maybe 1 or 2 a week) I always cringe at the thought of getting into an accident. So this week, I'm buying one of those booster seats without the back. It would be small enough to carry around to the grocery store and leave at my daycare.
Would you do this? It's not necessary or required by law here, but how do you solve something like this? A taxi is still a vehicle. The only time my son is not in a booster is when we take the bus to daycare or to the store.
