EMMETT TOWNSHIP, Mich. — He could have given her a ticket and a fine, but a public safety officer from Emmett Township, Michigan chose a different route when he stopped the driver.
Officer Ben Hall was on his patrol when he pulled the vehicle over for a traffic violation.
When he talked with the driver, he noticed a small child in the car who was wearing a seat belt but not in a child’s car seat.
The young mother told the Officer she understood the importance of having a child in a car seat, but could not afford one because of her limited income at the time.
Rather than giving the young mother a traffic ticket, Officer Hall had the mother pull into a Walmart parking lot, where he went inside and purchased a car seat for her daughter.
Officer Hall is being hailed by many for considering the moment and doing a good deed.
