Taxi and Travel Friendly Car Seats and Boosters

Avoid regrets!

Studies show that NYC taxi passengers are 2.5 times more likely to be seriously injured or killed than the passengers in the private vehicle involved in the crash. Accidents happen–but you can prevent injuries. Have NO REGRETS; protect your children. Make sure that quick taxi ride to school or a playdate doesn’t send your child to the hospital.

A European seat belt routing path enables an easy AND secure installation without the base in virtually any vehicle. All seats listed below have a European belt path AND have max weight limits of 30 lbs or more.

Note: Many seat belts will be too short for the European belt path on the Cybex Cloud Q, Doona, and Peg Perego 4-35.

Convertible Seats

These go rear-facing AND forward-facing.

Booster Seats

Most kids need a booster seat until ages 10 to 12. Big kids are 55% safer in a booster compared to just the seat belt. Boosters keep the seat belt properly positioned over a child’s strong hip bones. Best of all, boosters do not require any installation. All boosters listed pass U.S. crash tests.
