[ARCHIVED] Odessa Municipal Court Receives Traffic Safety Award

The City of Odessa Municipal Court recently received a Traffic Safety Award from the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center (TMCEC) in conjunction with TxDOT.

The City of Odessa Municipal Court recently received a Traffic Safety Award from the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center (TMCEC) in conjunction with TxDOT.

TMCEC's Municipal Traffic Safety Initiatives purpose is to prevent impaired driving through Texas municipal courts. This is achieved by offering impaired driving courses at judicial education seminars and through webinars, distributing free anti-DUI and DWI books and materials, and recognizing as models those municipal courts that demonstrate excellence in impaired driving prevention. MTSI plays an integral role in preventing impaired driving and making Texas roads safer.

The Odessa Municipal Court, in collaboration with the Odessa Fire Rescue/Fire Marshal’s Division, hosted a Child Safety Seat Expo during Child Passenger Safety Week (Sept. 20-26). Three certified child safety seat technicians were on site to inspect child passenger safety systems for attendees, to determine whether they were in good working order, and, if they were installed correctly. If it was determined that the installation was incorrect, the technicians re-installed them correctly, while providing education and guidance on correct installation techniques, and other safety tips for traveling with children. If it was determined that the attendee’s child passenger safety system was not in good working order, they were gifted with a new car seat or safety system, appropriate for the attendee’s child’s age and/or size. The Municipal Court also provided copies of the Bernard in the Backseat booklet, courtesy of TXDOT through TMCEC, for children attending the Expo with their parent(s).
