County Executive Announces 34th Annual Traffic Safety Awareness Show & Car Seat Check

September 24, 2018

As car safety seats become better equipped to protect the lives of our children, the technology can only go so far if they are properly installed. At last year's Traffic Safety Event, 102 car seats were inspected and alarmingly, only four were installed correctly and eight had to be replaced due to damage, being too old, being recalled or other ways that left the child in harm's way.

The Traffic Safety Awareness Show will be held this weekend at Crossgates Mall on Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30 in the lower level during normal mall hours. The car seat check will run Saturday only in the overflow lot adjacent to JC Penney from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

Over the weekend, participants will be educated on the dangers that exist on the road and best practices for traffic and child passenger safety. The Albany County Department of Public Works Traffic Safety Program is sponsoring the event.
