Police Officers, Justin Gower and Cale Hawkins, saw a dad driving dangerously with his kids in the backseat. That’s when they decided to do something about it!
After pulling the car over, they noticed a 1 year old, 3 year old, and 4 year old in the backseat of the car and none of them had car seats.
“I was upset because it’s extremely dangerous. I have kids and I know how fragile they are, especially how young these kids were.” Justin told KXAN Austin.
At first, the officers were FURIOUS, but Cale recognized the father that they had pulled over and knew that he was having trouble financially. So instead of giving the father a ticket, they decided to help him out.
Justin and Cale went back to the police station and gathered money from some of the other police officers. They then were were able to buy the father three new car seats for his three children.
When asked about their act of generosity, Cale 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.”
