Why child seats are not required on airline flights but required on cars

When travelling with an infant or a toddler, some airlines will not require to buy a seat for the child and therefore save space for full size adults. Having to strap a child into a child safety seat requires the adult to buy a seat at full price. The marginal cost compared to its benefit is high when buying a seat for a child with the the purpose of using a child safety seat, while the marginal cost is none when used on a car and the benefits gained are high. Another is that the chances of an accident is much higher on road vehicles compared with travelling by plane.
