CAR SEATS/SAFETY

Midlothian taxis
Newtongrange Taxi

All passengers must wear seat belts and ensure that any person under their control who is 16 years old or younger is also wearing a seat belt or appropriate restraint.

 

As there are so many different types of child seats / booster cushions we do NOT provide them for any journeys.Children over 3 are permitted by law to travel in the rear of a taxi or private hire car as long as they are wearing a seatbelt.If however you wish to bring your own child seat or booster cushion we can store it for you for use on your return journey.It is the parents responsibility to ensure the child seat is securely and properly fitted in the vehicle and not the drivers.

Children under 16 are advised not to travel in the front but they are allowed to do so if sitting in the correct seat,airbags will not be deactivated so children in rear facing child seats should travel in the rear of the taxi.

 

Number of passengers permitted to be carried in the taxi

 

A taxi driver is not permitted to carry more passengers than the number which the cab is licensed to carry. This number will be indicated on the vehicle plate displayed on the front and rear of the vehicle.Therefore, a passenger cannot request the driver to carry more than the permitted number of passengers.
