was a record breaking day at Albany County’s Child Safety Seat Check at Crossgates Mall. Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians were able to inspect 124 car seats- the most ever at this type of event.
Out of the 124 cars that were inspected, only 4 driven in were installed correctly and 17 car seats that were deemed unsafe were replaced.
“These numbers show how important it is to read the instructions while putting in our children’s seats and then check with the professionals to make sure it’s done correctly,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy.
Technicians from Albany and other neighboring counties were there to lend a helping hand and to also inform parents and caregivers about how to continue keeping their children’s riding experience safe.
