National child passenger safety week concludes with Albany County workshop

This weekend marks the end of national child passenger safety week.

Albany County workers put together a workshop Saturday at Crossgates Mall to help parents make sure their children are as safe as possible in the car.

Safety experts want to prevent injuries and deaths by making sure that car seats are installed correctly, and that little ones are strapped in, in the right way.

They say one child injured is too many.

The Albany County Department of Public Works tells us some common mistakes are harness straps or car seats that are too loose.

If you’re looking for help with your child’s car seat you can visit any of Albany County’s car seat fitting stations by appointment.
