A state program administered by the Minnesota Department of Public (DPS) Safety Office of Traffic Safety has provided 4,591 car seats during the last two years to families in need.


The Child Passenger Restraint and Education Account addresses the needs of low-income families to transport children safely. Child passenger safety seat violations fund the account to pay for the car seats. The program began in 1994.
