Yes, but how? Does the parent carry one around everywhere? Do cabs have car seats?

Not required in a yellow NY City cab. Some parents will bring them along though.

Most places have written in exceptions to the law requiring child seats that exempts taxis. If the parent has a car seat with them, though, many require that the taxi must use it.

Nevada
Massachusetts
Ohio
Virginia
etc.

Hmmm, I have just asked a similar question. I can’t imagine carrying a car seat around all day and my nephew is coming to stay soon and I know there will be times when we need to ride in a taxi. Does he sit on my lap or what?
