  • Are you confused wether you will get a baby seat or baby capsule?
  • millions of dollars in compensation won’t give you back your child in case of the unexpected happen, why risk it ?
  • Extra few dollars to save , compromising your child safety ! if you are going to the airport you have already spent thousands in airline ticket , accommodation , transport, food and so on . so why worried about saving few extra bucks when it comes to your child safety.

Before you book your maxi taxi with any other service provider, just ask them if they will put their kidz in a taxi over 12 months old in a normal seat with a normal seat belt.

At the end of the day , they are not breaking the law because sadly that’s the law, please read bellow and you will be amazed.

In NSW the new laws came into effect on 1 March 2010?

According to the RMS website formerly RTA this is what they say :

 

 
Taxi drivers must ensure:

  • All passengers younger than 12 months must be secured in a child restraint. 
  • All passengers aged over 12 months and under 16 years must: No passenger under four years old is in the front seat and a child four years or older but under seven years may only sit in the front row if all of the other seats in the row or rows behind the front row are occupied by passengers who are also under seven years old.
    • occupy a seating position that is fitted with a suitable seatbelt, and
    • not occupy the same seating position as another passenger (whether or not the other passenger is exempt from wearing a seatbelt under rule 267), and
    • wear the seatbelt properly adjusted and fastened.

However, for private cars there are different rules , this is what they say on the same website :

Do we need a child restraint in taxis ?

 All children under seven years of age must be secured in a child restraint or booster seat when traveling in a vehicle. The new child restraint laws in NSW are based on national model legislation.Babies up to six months of age must be restrained in a rearward facing restraint.Children from six months to under four years of age must be restrained in a rearward facing or forward facing restraint. Children under four years of age must not be in the front row of a vehicle with two or more rows.From four years to under seven years of age a forward facing restraint or booster seat must be used. Children from four to under seven years of age can only sit in the front row of a vehicle with two or more rows when all other seats are occupied by children of a lesser age in an approved child restraint.The ages specified above are a guide for the safety of your child. If your child is too small for a restraint specified for their age, they should be kept in their current restraint for as long as necessary.If your child is too large for a restraint specified for their age, they may move to the next level of restraint.
