Child Safety Seat Distribution and Education Program

Safe Riders Logo

Safe Riders develops partnerships with Texas stakeholders to educate on child passenger safety and coordinate the distribution of child safety seats to families in need. Safe Riders refers families to established distribution sites in their local community.

Safe Riders goal

Safe Riders goal is to reduce the number of motor vehicle crash injuries and fatalities to unrestrained children in Texas, to serve as an education and training resource for distribution partners, and to help build program capacity and sustainability.

The program is available to eligible recipients and is available in many, but not all areas of Texas.

Eligibility requirements for receiving a seat:

  • Family must be low-income or must be experiencing financial hardship.
