Taxi cabs and car seats.

How can it be justified that in your own personal vehicles you need a car seat for your chikd but in a taxi cab they are not required. The same thing for a transit bus. Those seats should be supplied in those vehicles for younger children in case of an emergency situation that could save lives. Also seat belts should be put into transit buses.

Taxi cabs and car seats

Where would taxi's put these car seats when not in use, and how many should they carry, as many people have more than 1 child.

Carseats

Could be stored in the trunk or at the office. When people call for a taxi, the dispatcher can ask how many adults and children to accommodate the families that need a taxi. Not sure how a taxi should be any different then a family vehicle when transporting children.

No

Being a parent also means you are responsible for your child. Parents know that restaurants are hit and miss when supplying booster seats or highchairs so we deal with it. It is not the job or responsibility of the food place to be kid friendly. Same as car seats. You know upon having a child that car seat ownership is probably in your future. The convenience of a child car seat or booster seat if the bus had belts is nice if provided but not the cities job.  
 
Nor is it cabs unless they want. If mandated just how many sizes of car seats or booster seats would need to be towed around? Not a lot of car seats are one size fits all. Cripes who is going to fit and adjust the child into the seat?. Forward or back? Shampooed and cleaned daily or just after a food related incident. I am also sure the would have to be seated by the driver. Good luck with that. Yet we know a poorly mounted car seat or if sized wrong is a injury causing issue big time. Simply put car seats are a logistics nightmare for transit drivers or cab drivers.

These are private business people usually contractors. I’d be passing on any calls requiring me to drive all the way back to the office to install a car seat then run and get you, drop you off then run back to the office and remove the car seat...meanwhile I’ve missed 4 calls. install your own car seats when they get to your house and in install them when you get where your going if it’s so easy.
