Good Egg Safety is warning of fake car seats that are putting children’s lives at risks. They’ve found that fabric ‘child car seats’ are being sold on popular selling sites such as eBay.
The seats have not been through any official crash testing to allow them to be used in the UK.

Child Car Seats
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to remind all parents of the changes with regard to child car seat regulations. The new regulations, which came into force in September 2006, could help prevent 2,000 child deaths or injuries every year.
According to research carried out by Churchill Car Insurance, 23% of parents with children aged three to 12 do not use seats at all; 10% of parents mistakenly think children do not need a child car seat once they are eight and 70% of parents did not replace their baby or child seat following a car crash.
