What are the rules regarding the use of seatbelts and child safety seats in taxicabs?

0

Drivers of the taxicab and for-hire vehicles are exempt from the laws regarding seat belts and the vehicles are exempt from providing child safety seats. The passengers, however, are required to use seat belts. The DCTC, however, encourages everyone in the vehicle to buckle their seatbelts while riding in a cab and requires taxicab vehicles to post a decal to that effect. Passengers with children are encouraged to bring their own car seats, which the drivers must allow passengers to install. Can you pre-arrange a trip in a taxicab? Taxicabs and other for hire vehicles may have pre-arranged agreement with clients. This means that the client may request to be picked up and dropped off at a specific location and know the amount of the fare ahead of time. This is not to be confused with calling a dispatch service and reserving a taxicab. Commission regulations allow for taxicabs to be employed on an hourly basis and set the rates at $25.00 for the first hour or fraction thereof, and $6.25
