Children are our future and protecting our most precious assets is critical, especially in the car and their child safety seats. At last year’s Traffic Safety Event, 100+ child safety seats were inspected and only a few were installed correctly.
The Traffic Safety Awareness Show is set for this weekend at Crossgates during normal mall hours on Saturday, September 25 and Sunday, September 26. The show will take place on the lower level of the mall by Verizon Wireless.
The free Car Seat Check runs Saturday [only] from 11:00AM – 2:00PM in the overflow parking lot adjacent to Homewood/tru by Hilton at Crossgates.
The main focus of this weekend is going to be to teach everyone the dangers and the importance of traffic and child passenger safety. Members of Albany County law enforcement and safety related organizations will be on-hand all weekend to answer any questions you have regarding traffic safety. There will be a variety of safety exhibits, interactive displays, and traffic safety related give-a-ways for you to take home. This weekend is sponsored by the Albany County Department of Public Works – Traffic Safety Education Program.
