They just sit in lawn chairs and do nothing it was 12:20 pm and traffic was heavy. There were tons of pedestrians and they just sat there Fire the lot I say waste of money.

I think they hire Special needs people Theres one cubby girl that I believe is DownSydrome and an older lady with short gray hair that I think is Retarded. At the big intersection on union Ave. The rest look like they come from a soup kitchen. Thats probably why they just sit in chairs I guess they can't do much else. Saratoga springs PD and the city seem to employ the down and out and retarded. Which is nice but not too safe for the patrons going to the track.

I think you may be right they don't ever get out of the chairs and cross anyone. I almost got ran over last sunday while they sat in camping chairs. They must be developmentally disabled folks they give jobs too. I remember a few years ago they had real traffic and crossing guards working at the main intersection in front of the track. They used to stop the cars and help you cross.
