Taxis and toddlers

We are travelling to San Francisco with a 3 1/2 year old and was wondering what the situation was, with travelling in taxis with a toddler. Will he need a carseat for the taxi?

Yes. You should bring a car seat with you or purchase one when you come to our country. Besides the law, it is a safety issue and with due respect to cab drivers and I have sat in cabs in many places around the world i would not trust any of them with my precious cargo.

If you go up to the California Forum and look at the top questions on the right side menu on a non phone or tablet browser, (ie on a PC or Desktop) you will see a good summary on what is needed in terms of car seats

In addition to the car seat a lightweight stroller, or Umbrella stroller will make your life easier.
