I've noticed a fair few used car seats being sold in the forum. My understanding is that second hand car seats (like second hand helmets) should never be used as the purchaser has no idea how they've been treated and whether they're still safe. Also car seats have an expiry date which people often don't know to look for.

I wonder if car seat sales should be stopped on the forum or at least a prominent warning be provided on each thread?

Unfortunately we can't police the selling of legal items. Yes we could put a warning but we would have to put warnings about many things; cars, bikes, meeting buyers/sellers, how to make transactions, food, drink etc. but it would take away from the simplicity of the forum and I'm not sure of how much value a warning about car seats appearing on all adverts would add.

By all means feel free to drop a note on adverts yourself but at the moment it's not something we can do.

Thanks and I understand. I just think it's something that people are not really aware of.
