Figures released by the Good Egg Safety team indicate a 13% rise in badly fitted child car seats in the four-year period 2010-2013.

The figures - which are based on more than 10,500 tests conducted by Good Egg across England, Scotland and Wales - show a rise in unsafe fitting from 47% in 2010, to 55% in 2011, 57% in 2012 and 60% in 2013.

Good Egg Safety attributes the increase on what it calls a ‘perfect storm’ of poor in-shop assistance by some retailers, online buying, hand-me-downs and second-hand purchases.

The campaign’s data shows that in 2013 under half of purchasers buying from a shop were given access to a trained member of staff, and only one third were asked the essential information required for correct fitting.

A summary of the results is available on the link below. For the full results contact the Good Egg team by email (below)
