Day 144: Taxi!

Completely forgot to mention. Last Sunday we were travelling into Greenwich with one of our neighbours to go for dinner. Hubby intended to have a beer and I could have driven, but I really fancied a beer myself. I’m not talking drunk, but I did fancy a couple of beers which of course would mean I wouldn’t be able to drive. But how to get a taxi?

Sounds stupid but how can you get a taxi with a baby? Our car seat was one of those that you needed to fix the base in and then put the car seat into it. Then of course I’d need to carry the car seat and base around ready for the journey back. APPARENTLY this cab service was exempt… but this is nothing new… most taxis are exempt. Basically: In a licensed taxi or licensed hire car, if a child restraint is not available then the child may travel unrestrained in the rear. This is the only exemption, and has been introduced for practical rather than safety reasons.

Who knew! You can carry your baby in a taxi and you’re not breaking the law!
