    Ive used taxis before without a child restraint when I only had the one. Meh it didn't bother me.

    The rule is like that to help tourists and ppl who suddenly don't have their cars for whatever reason or who can't drive.

    I've done the SAHM thing with 1, 2 and next year 3 kids with no car.

    Emergencies - call an ambulance. Otherwise it's a walking/public transport thing if you do not want to use taxis.

    You can't use taxis if you have more than one child per adult. So that excludes me on all accounts now.

    In what state? I've never heard of that and have put my three kids in a taxi with just me. Is it age dependent?


    OP...if your baby needed medical assistance that urgently that you couldn't walk or catch a bus to see a doctor, then you would call for an ambulance.

    I didn't have my license until I had 3 kids and the youngest was a toddler. I found it really easy actually. I walked everywhere and got public transport when I had to.

    It may be, but in an emergency I'd use one which is what I thought you were asking :-)

    I have no public transport where I am and half the roads don't have footpaths. An ambulance could be an hour away.

    Actually in an emergency I'd break the law and drive my car if I had to.

    That's what I was told up here in qld when I rang up yellow cabs to ask. Yes it's age dependent. As I had 2 under 2 and now soon 3 under 5yrs old.
