    Hi there.

    From the laws of getting a ticket? Yes if they're considered a livery, no if they're considered a standard driver. https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/VAT/1229-C

    From the laws of physics? No.

    Every child should be appropriately restrained (and as of next Friday, every child under the age of two will be rear facing by law).
