What's the penalty for not having child car seat?

This happened to someone i know who's from foreign country where car seats are not required by the law. I work in NYC and take yellow cabs all the time and sometimes there's no way for you to carry car seat everywhere you go. That's why i'm curious about the penalty and laws about car seats.
someone told me every state, county, even towns have different fine/point system... is this true? to me this does sound like serious violation

I'm not sure of the minimum fine but I know the maximum fine is dead kid.

If you, oh, I mean your "friend" only gets a fine, consider yourself lucky. This is considered "child endangerment" and you, um, I mean your "friend" can actually go to jail. The fine should be at least 271 and can be higher. I don't know what you, I mean your "friend" were thinking but this is not just stupid, but it's dangerous. But I bet you'll still do it again.

Try this site but I think that it is $100.00 dollars.
