Basic competence in terms of knowledge of the issues and then perhaps "ed echad ne'eman..." will apply. As I said, AYLOR whether this is sufficient, but you certainly are entitled to feel that it is not.

I'm going to Israel next week with a 1.5 yr old. I'd like to take a taxi around, possibly to Meron, Tzfas... Do taxis usually have built-in-carseats or do I need to buy/borrow one?

if you order thru Gett then you could request a car seat but I think
 
If you're going that far, I'd rent a car
or take a Jewish Driver for the same price which will supply you with the car seat
