NY Otto the Auto

Meet Otto the Auto! He’s a AAA robot that many AAA Clubs use to promote traffic safety education.

Otto comes to us from the Auto Club of Western and Central NY Foundation for Traffic Safety, Inc. The Foundation is dedicated to educating the public and raising awareness of safe driving, pedestrian safety, bike safety, and more – all in an effort to reduce traffic-related deaths and injuries.

Otto is used as a tool to engage young children on safety awareness throughout Western and Central New York. The educational program is very successful across the country. Otto is available to visit your school or public event on a lottery-style basis. 

Otto is limited to indoor, weekday, school-hour activities located in the Western & Central New York region, Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please follow Otto on Twitter.
