Bahama Car Seat Laws
Does anybody know where I can find the laws for carseats in the Bahamas. A friend of mine is headed there, they have a 5 mile drive from the airport to their hotel, they need to know what to take.

Re: Bahama Car Seat Laws
I'm not sure about any laws, but we've spent quite a bit of time there. I've never seen a carseat in the Bahamas, except for the one we brought with us... It's a very laidback country. If she just takes her normal seats, then that will be fine. If they're going to be in a taxi, then there's a chance some taxis won't have seatbelts. But she can always wait for one that does.
ETA: After posting the above message, I looked it up. Here's a link to a law:
But we were just there last year for several months: children were hanging out of car windows, etc. Even if the above was actually made into a law (which wasn't clear...?), it's not being enforced. Regardless, the laws of physics still apply. Just do what she does here and she'll be fine.
Where any passenger mentioned under this section is under the age of five years, such passenger shall be secured in a child passenger seat positioned in the rear passenger seat of the motor vehicle.
