I am suspecting it's not a true reflection correct usage rates due the demographics of surrounding areas being different compared to all of Victoria.

    Some seats are easier to install correctly than others, and have features that promote safety. The new infa grandeur sounds great as it's got high rf markers, covers can be taken off when still installed I think, doesn't need to be taken out to change strap height, and has straps that are less likely to twist. Hopefully these features will start being in demand and become more common, and also the appeal of not having to shop for another seat for a long time is very appealing for many that don't consider a lot of the safety features
    So do you think the 70% isn't a true reflection because it would be higher or lower because of the change in demographics?

    I think the people who went to get it checked probably knew it wasn't right. If you read the manual and watched YouTube videos and were confident it was right you wouldn't go to the shopping centre

    I also wonder if it was parents or grandparents that got them checked too.

    My parents are amazing and have 3 car seats in the back of their car. But whenever they have installed one it's been sooooo wrong but they have thought it was ok.
