travelling by taxi with infants

Some taxi's have seat belts, some don't.

We also have never seen a baby car seat used in this country. However, occasionally there is a poster who says that they did bring their car seats and used them.


We've taken at least four taxis per day for the past 3 months. I always sit in the back seat, and don't recall seeing one taxi with rear seat belts. Maybe I'm not very observant. What I have noticed is that the power windows on half the vehicles so equipped don't work....and are always frozen in the closed position. (Keeps out the rain....and the fresh air.) And a few taxis with wind-down window handles are sans-handles.....again, in the "up" position. Car seats for children? Nada. Maybe they're stowed in the trunk?

Well, obviously, I haven't been observant at all. Both taxis today had rear seatbelts....AND operating rear side windows. Come to think of it, all vehicles manufactured in Mexico over the last decade probably come equipped with front and rear seat belts, by law. But, unlike Canada, where all jurisdictions require drivers and all passengers to wear seatbelts, it is still optional in Mexico.
