A group of Texas police officers joined together to help a father who could not afford car seats for his three infant children.
According to NBC affiliate KXAN, Officer Justin Gower had pulled over the man before and knew he was working hard to try and afford the necessary safety devices for his one, three and four-year-olds. The family had previously been living in their car, and Gower knew that fining them would only set them back further.
“They’re going in the right direction, and to issue them three citations for each child would just devastate them,” Officer Gower said.
“Money is not the issue, it’s the issue of can you help them, and so that was the easiest way we saw the fastest path to helping them,” said Officer Hawkins.
